John Ibrahim’s son Daniel Taylor loses defamation case against Sunday Telegraph
Justice Katzmann said Mr Taylor – who uses his mother’s surname – was described by the newspaper as a “key player” in the Ibrahim family, however most of the publication had nothing to do with him.
“That said, his name is mentioned no fewer than 70 times and his photograph appears eight times,” she said.
Justice Katzmann said the “voyeuristic” publication did not contain an “express statement” that Mr Taylor was a mobster, Mafia figure or criminal, and he was required to show the entirety of the 24-page spread conveyed that meaning.
“The portrait of Mr Taylor is certainly unflattering. It does not paint him in a favourable light. And it is understandable that he would be unhappy about it,” she said.
