    Camelot v Centaur Communications Ltd [1998] IRLR 80 CA (0 other reports)

In Camelot v Centaur Communications Ltd [1998] IRLR 80, the Court of Appeal upholds a High Court order for the delivery-up of leaked documents belonging to an employer, to enable it to identify the employee who was the source of the leak in order to dismiss him or her. This was because there existed a continuing threat of further damage to the employer if the employee remained unidentified, and the Court could find no public interest in protecting the source from disclosure.
