Complainant Name:
Mr Mark Strickland

Clauses Noted: 1

Publication: Kerrang!


Mr Mark Stickland complained, through Carter-Ruck solicitors, that the magazine had failed to report the outcome of an action for defamation to which it had been party.


The complaint was resolved when the magazine published the following wording:

Issue 1090 of Kerrang!, dated January 14, 2006, contained an interview with Bullet For My Valentine in which drummer Moose made an allegation about the band's tour manager. Mr Stickland denied the allegation and argued that in printing it Kerrang! had defamed him. On January 17, a High Court jury in London ruled that it was libellous of Kerrang! to print the allegation, and awarded Mr Stickland damages and payment of his costs.

Report: 74
