Daily Mirror Wins Lawsuit Over Naomi Campbell's Legal Fees


Naomi Campbell
The tabloid finally won a longrunning legal battle over the huge fees charged by the supermodel's lawyers after winning a privacy case in 2004.


Editors at a British newspaper have won a longrunning legal battle over the huge fees supermodel Naomi Campbell's lawyers charged after winning a privacy case in 2004. In 2002, the British beauty took bosses at tabloid the Daily Mirror to court claiming her privacy had been breached by the publication of a snap of her leaving a Narcotics Anonymous meeting in London.

A judge ordered the newspaper's publishers to pay Campbell $5,250 and cover her legal costs, which, due to 'success fees' in the U.K., had a huge mark-up and amounted to a staggering $1.5 million. The Daily Mirror editors took an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, where judges declared the fees charged by Campbell's lawyers at London legal firm Schillings were extortionate.

The case was against the U.K. government, which introduced the 'success fees', and newspaper bosses will have to discuss compensation with ministers. A Trinity Mirror spokesman says, "This has been a long hard fight but we have been proved right."
