The former Formula One boss, Max Mosley, who hit the headlines in 2008 after the News of the World published photos of him with prostitutes, has won damages from News Corporation after legal proceedings in Paris.Reuters reports that a French court ruled Mosley’s privacy was breached when the now defunct newspaper published pictures of him enjoying an orgy with prostitutes who appeared to be dressed as Nazis (a particular juicy detail for the tabloid considering his father was one of the UK’s most infamous fascists).
Mosely denied there was a Nazi theme.
Mosley, who has already been awarded damages in the UK, was awarded €7,000 ($9,600) in damages as well as €16,000 ($22,000) in legal fees. News Corporation was fined a further €10,000 ($14,000) for the breach of privacy.
The Guardian reports that Mosley was able to bring his case to the French court due to 3,000 copies of the paper being distributed in the country.
