Judge ponders Giggs damages claim

A High Court judge is considering whether a damages claim made by Manchester United's Ryan Giggs against The Sun newspaper should be thrown out.

The Sun says Giggs' claim - made after the newspaper published an article about a relationship with reality television star Imogen Thomas - is "dead in the water'' and should be stopped.

Giggs says The Sun "misused'' private information and argues that he is entitled to claim damages for distress and breach of a right to privacy enshrined in human rights legislation.

At the High Court in London on Tuesday, Mr Justice Tugendhat heard legal argument about whether Giggs' damages claim should proceed.

He reserved judgment on whether there should be a trial to a date to be fixed.

Giggs was named in open court for the first time at Tuesday's hearing - after starting legal action following the publication of the article in April 2011 - as a result of a judge concluding that anonymity was no longer necessary.

A judge had ruled that Giggs should not be identified in order to protect his privacy - but the star has been named in many publications after his identity was revealed in Parliament.

Mr Justice Tugendhat said at the hearing that anonymity no longer applied to Giggs.
