Within 24 hours of his victorious privacy suit last week worth £60,000, Max Mosley is following through on libel proceedings against British tabloid newspaper, for their reports of the FIA president's alleged involvement in a Nazi themed sex orgy.
Within 24 hours of his victorious privacy suit last week worth £60,000, Max Mosley has followed through on libel proceedings against British tabloid newspaper, News of the World, for their reports of the FIA president's alleged involvement in a Nazi themed sex orgy.
"Following his successful privacy claim, and the attempts by the editor and staff of the News of the World to devalue the outcome of that claim, Mr. Mosley will now be pursuing a claim for damages and aggravated damages in relation to the defamatory allegations in the April 6 edition of the News of the World."
The secretly-filmed video footage, which was reported by NOTW as "truly grotesque and depraved," was published on its web site showing Mosley participating in a Nazi themed sadomasochistic role play sex orgy with five prostitutes at a rented Chelsea basement flat.
Although, Mosley admitted the S&M session took place, he added that it was consensual and private, with no Nazi overtones.
NOTW reported in an interview with the prostitute who filmed the event that she claimed there was a Nazi theme in their S&M role playing. Additionally, the newspaper article claimed that Mosley was a liar for denying the prostitutes claims.
In a turn of events, the High Court ruled there was no evidence of a Nazi theme, and the prostitute has now changed her story by confirming to Sky News there was no Nazi element.
"I know for a fact, that it was spoken about, that Max actually found it quite a turn-on to speak to them in German," she said. "He liked the German language. It was prison uniforms because we were doing a German prison scene. But it wasn't Nazi."
With the victorious privacy judgment and the prostitute changing her story about a key element in the case, Mosley is well positioned for retribution.
Furthermore, Mosley is also pursuing legal action against German newspaper Bild in which Mosley seeks one million Euro and an additional 500,000 Euro from the newspaper's online edition in damages for their reports.
