MEGHAN MARKLE WANTS TO SETTLE CASE WITH TABLOID AND AVOID TRIAL – (01/20/2021)
Meghan Markle is hoping to settle her suit against the Associated Newspapers in lieu of a trial. Her lawyer asked a British judge on Tuesday to rule that its publication of a “deeply personal” letter to her estranged father was “a plain and a serious breach of her rights of privacy.”
The 39-year-old is suing for invasion of privacy and copyright infringement over five articles published in February of 2019 in the Mail on Sunday and MailOnline, which included portions of a handwritten letter that she sent to her father Thomas Markle, after her marriage to Prince Harry.
The Associated Newspapers is contesting her claim, and a trial is set for the fall. Many expect it to be one of London’s biggest civil court trials in years.
Her lawyer Justin Rushbrooke argued that the publisher had “no real prospect” of winning the case.
“At its heart it’s a very straightforward case about the unlawful publication of a private letter,” he said kicking off a two-day hearing, held remotely because of coronavirus restrictions.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the singer donated the seed money for the project and has matched all the funds raised for it to date. The initial ten organizations will receive grants to cover six months’ worth of mental healthcare for their activist workers.
Cabello wrote on Instagram, “Over the past couple of months, Ana Perez & Jerry Tello from the @la.cultura.cura have been guiding me on this journey filled with learning & unpacking the ways I have contributed to systems & beliefs that actively oppress others, whether by making insensitive comments in the past or by being a bystander, & growing to acknowledge the missteps along the way as I work to become a true ally.”
She continued, “And while we all struggled with the events that transpired from the last year, there were activists on the frontlines of those transformative moments carrying the trauma of the unjust systems some groups face everyday. To be a part of this positive change, we have a responsibility to support organizers to care for themselves as they advocate to move our society forward.”
Cabello will be highlighting some of the groups she has been working with on Instagram in the coming months.
