Zu Sayn-Wittgenstein-Sayn (claimant/respondent) v Borbon y Borbon (defendant/applicant)

Monday 18th July 2022 (2:00pm)

The Defendant (D) (former King of Spain) seeks Permission to Appeal against the order made by Nicklin J date 29/3/22 dismissing D’s application that the Court has no jurisdiction to hear C’s claim on grounds of state immunity.

The parties were in a relationship from 2004 to 2009. C’s claim was that D was responsible for course of conduct amounting to harassment from 2012 to 2020 in breach of section 1 of the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

The judge ruled that the grounds on which state immunity was claimed had not been made out and ordered that the claim should continue.
