Rowling Fights for her Children's Privacy

In order to shield her children, along with those of other celebrities, from newspapers and tabloids, author J.K. Rowling and her husband, Neil Murray, sued the British newspaper Sunday Express for invasion of privacy after the publication of an unauthorized picture of their son David.

Rowling won a privacy case against the Daily Express, parent company of the Sunday Express, effectively preventing British newspapers from taking and publishing photographs of the children of celebrities.

Rowling had this to say about her victory against the press:

"I am delighted that my children's right to privacy has been recognizedd by the Daily Express. Neil and I will continue to protect that right, on our children's behalf, as vigorously as possible."
