Edwin Buckett settles High Court voyeurism claims
News | Fri 15th Sep, 2017
On the 12th September 2017, Master Kay QC approved the settlement of 10 separate claims, brought by pupils anonymously, against Clifton College school, which arose out of the covert filming of children at the school by a former teacher and housemaster between 1997 and 2014.
The teacher was subsequently prosecuted and sentenced to a period of imprisonment in 2015 for the filming activities.
The claims were for breach of confidence, invasion of privacy and under Article 8 of the ECHR (right to private and family life) with aggravated and exemplary damages and the terms of the settlement remain confidential.
Edwin Buckett was instructed by Phil Gower of Simpson Millar (Cardiff).
