Lowe Wins Court Case

Southampton chairman Rupert Lowe has won his court case against The Times.

Lowe was awarded 250,000 libel damages over a newspaper's report saying he'd acted 'shabbily' in suspending Dave Jones who was suspended over child abuse allegations that he was fully acquitted of later.
The High Court took 3 hours to reach a unanimous verdict.

Lowe said after the case: 'Its been a long eight days and I am just glad that we have been vindicated in what we believed. At the end of the day it is a pity we had to go as far as we did in order to make sure the truth came out.'

A spokesman for Mr Lowe's solicitors said: 'We never wanted to go to court and tried to settle this case from day one. The decision of the jury has not only vindicated our clients' reputation but will send a loud and clear message to all newspapers that they cannot hide behind the cloak of fair comment whilst being cavalier with the facts.'

Lowe had offered to settle the case for 20,000 despite saying the article was a 'blot' on his character.
