Statistics on privacy injunctions

Official Statistics on privacy injunctions dealt with at hearings at the High Court or Court of Appeal at the Royal Courts of Justice in London.

The statistics relate to injunctions dealt with in any civil proceedings in the High Court or Court of Appeal in London where the court considers an application for an injunction prohibiting the publication of private or confidential information, the continuation of such an injunction, or an appeal against the grant or refusal of such an injunction. The statistics do not cover injunctions arising from proceedings dealing with family issues, immigration or asylum issues, to proceedings which raise issues of national security, nor to most proceedings dealing with intellectual property and employment issues. They are produced in accordance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics.

Privacy injunctions from July to December 2014 have been incorporated into the civil justice statistics quarterly publication.
