Brady v Norman – WLR Daily

Brady v Norman [2011] EWCA Civ 107; [2011] WLR (D) 40

“The policy behind the limitation period for defamation cases being shorter than that in personal injuries claims was clear, since the defamatory impact of libel or slander was likely to be transient and Parliament evidently intended that a claimant should assert and pursue his need for vindication speedily. Considerations as to prejudice in applications for the disapplication of the time limit in defamation cases were likely to be different than those in personal injuries cases and in defamation cases it was for the claimant to make out a case for the disapplication of the normal time limit.”
