I want to talk today about a recent decision of the UK High Court called King v Grundon. This was a defamation decision given extempore, which means an oral judgment given by the judge at the time – live, so to speak, or ‘off the cuff’. Such judgments are in the nature of doing immediate justice, but are persuasive only because of their ‘less thought out’ character. This makes the case a bit obscure, but it has an interesting New Zealand connection and is useful as an example of where the law is going and where it might go here.
