Complainant Name:
Ms Gerry Cowper through the Simkins Partnership

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: News of the World

Complaint:
Ms Gerry Cowper complained through the Simkins Partnership solicitors that an article made a number of untrue allegations: that she had sex with her husband while he was in prison; that she sent him sexy photos and kinky letters; that police were called over her noisy rowing; and that she threw her husband out of her home.

Resolution:
The matter was resolved directly between the parties when the newspaper ran an acknowledgment that the allegations were untrue and an apology to the complainant and her family. The acknowledgment also included an apology to the complainant’s father for wrongly identifying a picture of him as being Ms Cowper’s husband.

Report: 70
