More success for Rogers and Norton’s Litigation team in defamation claim

12th Feb 2021

Our Litigation team led by Peter Hastings successfully concluded a claim for Mutual Aid Sheringham (MASh).

Judicial Review

It was alleged in May 2020 that our clients were subject to Police Investigation. This allegation was completely untrue and false. We advised our clients that this was a defamatory statement, and advised our clients that they had a claim in defamation. A letter of claim was issued and we engaged with Sheringham Town Council and its solicitors in pursuing the claim. Our clients received an apology and admission that the statement was false and untrue. The Council settled a claim for damages and costs. Our clients are delighted that they can now put this event behind them and continue to serve the local community, working with the Council.

Our clients commented “Throughout the duration of our case Peter Hastings and the team at Rogers and Norton worked tirelessly with incredible diligence and professionalism, promptly and ending with the best outcome. We really felt like they were working for us and we very much appreciated their skills and second to none expertise. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Peter, you are what they call a legend. “
