Claims Examples

Publishers – Breach of privacy claim

Publishers – Breach of privacy claim We handled a breach of privacy claim against a publisher insured who published and distributed a story regarding an eminent TV personality.  The claim against the insured related to the claimant’s right to privacy versus the insured’s right to publish news in the public interest.

The matter was further complicated by the insured further distributing the story to other online news outlets. Issues around contractual warranties regarding losses flowing from the original article being published became paramount.  We stepped in to protect the insured from any claims arising out of its publication.


Journalism – Defamation claim

Our insured, a journalist, exposed a charity’s unethical financial practices. In response, the charity sued our insured for damages. Fortunately, the insured had sought legal advice prior to publishing their article which concluded their exposé could not be deemed as defamatory. The insured’s Beazley policy stepped in to support the insured’s defence and the matter was ultimately dropped.
