Barrister Victoria Jolliffe acts for claimants and defendants in defamation, privacy, data protection, malicious falsehood, harassment, and other media-related actions. She recently obtained a final injunction for a school whose pupils had been targeted via an ‘anonymous’ Facebook page. ‘Publicity has made people much more aware of potential remedies available to them and much more willing to pursue those remedies,’ she says. Jolliffe says data protection work will form a greater part of her practice in the future. She points out that the powers granted to the authorities by the Data Protection Act remain largely untested, giving the potential for future cases.
