Case overview

Update April 26, 2023: Nina Cresswell has successfully defended a libel case brought against her in the High Court by the man, William Hay, who sexually assaulted her and whose identity she revealed online in order to protect other women.

Nina won her case on both her truth defence and also a public interest defence. The Judge found that she was able to prove the claimant had sexually assaulted her and that the statements she made were a matter of public interest.
