The Supreme Court said a judgement in the case, involving a celebrity who applied for a private injunction order against the Sun on Sunday in January, would be published at around 9.45am.

The case considered whether the publication overseas of the identity of PJS and details of PJS’s sexual encounters had resulted in the protected information no longer being confidential or private, such that the injunction preventing publication in England and Wales should be set aside.

During an oral hearing last month, the Supreme Court heard arguments as to whether permission to appeal should be granted, and, if it is granted, whether the appeal should be allowed or dismissed.

The case has led to debate over the viability of super-injunctions in the digital age and the question of when information is in the public interest, especially with the identity of PJS having been published in other jurisdictions.
