Chris Huhne’s partner Carina Trimingham has lost her privacy action against Associated Newspapers.
The High Court ordered Ms Trimingham to pay costs of £250,000 within 14 days.
Ms Trimingham described the judgement as “confused and I think wrong”, stating she would appeal the decision.
“The court did not appreciate that when national newspapers made repeated irrelevant references to my sexuality, particularly in the context of pejorative and stereotypical references to appearance, it amounts to the same type of mocking which the court has confirmed is unacceptable. This is confused and I think wrong. I’m very concerned that this judgement may become a blueprint for bullies and bigots, and I intend to appeal,” she said.
