New practice direction for 'privacy' injunctions—CPR PD 51F

A new practice direction, CPR PD 51F came into effect on 1 August 2011, launching a pilot scheme to collate data on the number and types of non-disclosure injunctions (aka 'privacy' and 'super' injunctions) being processed through the courts. The information to be collated (by use of a prescribed form for completion by the judge hearing the application) includes details as to the claim/application number, whether the hearing was for an interim injunction, an application to extend/vary one, apply for a final one or appeal against the grant/refusal of an interim or final injunction. It will also detail whether the application was on notice and whether or not there were any derogations from the principle of open Justice. For our earlier report on this new practice direction, see Interim Non-Disclosure Orders (aka 'privacy injunctions') Practice Guidance and a new Practice Direction (51F) issued.
