Sportsman 'JIH' appeals against identification ruling

Well-known sportsman goes to court to stop the media from publishing his details.

A well-known sportsman who obtained an order stopping the media publishing information about his private life appealed a ruling which would reveal his identity.

The man, referred to in court as JIH, on Friday asked a panel of three judges headed by the Master of the Rolls, Lord Neuberger, to reverse a ruling by High Court judge.

Hugh Tomlinson QC, representing the personality, said the public had a right to know why the injunction was granted but no right to know private information.

He said any judgment on the matter could refer to the information but all the parties should be anonymised.
