Norwich City issue proceedings against News of the World

Norwich City have launched proceedings in the High Court against the publishers of the News of the World, following the article printed in the newspaper on January 24, 2010.

Norwich City have launched High Court legal proceedings for libel against the News of the World over their recent article alleging the Canaries were on the brink of administration.

City officials had demanded a printed apology and damages for the article published on January 24 which claimed City would enter administration the following week.

A statement on the club's official website read: “Norwich City Football Club PLC has issued proceedings in the High Court against the publishers of the News of the World, following the article printed in the NOTW on January 24, 2010.

“The NOTW failed to comply with the terms of the letter sent by our solicitors of the same date, and accordingly Leathes Prior have issued on our behalf legal proceedings for libel.”
