Libel Appeal - Judgement reserved

As judgement has been reserved following yesterday's appeal hearing I cannot comment or speculate on any outcome.

The hearing, which related to Mark James' counterclaim for libel against me, took up the full two hours allowed and the substance of the arguments concerned a reference I had made to the clause in the council's constitution to fund it's officers to bring claims for libel. The issue was one of meaning.
There were three appeal judges and they will make their decision in due course.

I attended the hearing at the Court of Appeal in London and my very grateful thanks go again to my legal team and everyone who has continued to support me.
