Jude Law wins lawsuit against UK tabloid [Poll]

April 9, 2010 | 10:00 am

Jude law Jude Law has won damages and legal fees in a suit against Hello!, a UK celebrity publication, after the tab published pictures of three of his four kids while they were vacationing with him and Sienna Miller in the Caribbean in January. 

In addition to a fine of about $15,000, Hello! agreed not to publish pictures of Law alone or with his children in situations where they have "a reasonable expectation of privacy." Whether Law's fourth child is included in the decision -- well, maybe not?

The legal route is a departure from the orange-hurling tactics the actor used in November against NYU students apparently majoring in celebrity photography. 

We're almost afraid to publish this picture of Jude. Almost. But then we checked with our lawyers, who assured us there's no reasonable expectation of privacy on a red carpet. Whew. 

Your thoughts?
