I would have thought that defaming a senior judge is not one of the more sensible activities for a newspaper editor to engage in but The Telegraph has apologised to Lord Justice Sedley….

The Lawyer reports:

The Daily Telegraph is to issue a formal apology to Lord Justice Sedley over a series of “professionally damaging” allegations which appeared in the paper last year.

It is extremely rare for a judge to launch libel proceedings, but this is the second time Sedley LJ has secured a newspaper apology. In 1996 The Independent was forced to public apologise to the then-High Court judge after it accused him of being politically partisan.

@Afuahirch of The Guardian has the link to the apology:
