As a matter of public interest Guido is passing on this email circulating inside the Mail:
Please Note the contents of this new Legal Warning – If you are an internal recipient you may click on the link at the bottom of the memo to see the document in the warnings database.
We have been contacted by Keith Schilling in connection with an article in The Mail on Sunday dated 29 May 2011, page 13, headed “How The Silencer made me sign a gagging agreement … on our second date” and on Mail Online headed “How lawyer who’s made millions keeping secrets of stars made me sign a gagging agreement … on our second date“.
Mr Schilling says publication of the article is a breach of contract and breach of confidence. He also says it breaches his privacy.
Please contact the legal department with any queries.
They say when you represent yourself you have a fool for a client. Keith Schilling wants to sue an ex-girlfriend and the Mail for violating his privacy by saying he is effectively a sad weirdo. Truth is an absolute defence to libel and this is a matter of public interest given his firm’s ongoing campaign of legal terrorism.
The public interest always trumps privacy…
