Ned Rocknroll won his case against The Sun, the newspaper which opted to publish embarrassing photographs of him for the sake of financial gain.
Reuters reports that lawyers for the 34-year-old argued that the newspaper’s publishing of semi-nude photographs could cause potential harm to his new wife, Kate Winslet, children if the photos were published and therefore there is no public interest in publishing them.
A judge ruled in Rocknroll’s favor noting that the decision will be released a later time.
A statement has since been released on behalf of Winslet and Rocknroll which states, “We have stopped The Sun from publishing semi-naked photos of Ned taken by a friend at a private 21st birthday party a few years ago.The photos are innocent but embarrassing and there is no reason to splash them across a newspaper.”
The statement continues, "We recognize that in the internet age privacy is harder and harder to maintain. But we will continue to do what we can, particularly to protect Kate's children from the results of media intrusion. We refuse to accept that her career means our family can't live a relatively normal life."
Winslet and Rocknroll were married in an ultra-private ceremony in December 2012.
