UK: ATTORNEY GENERAL LAUNCHES NEW CAMPAIGN TO COMBAT CONTEMPT OF COURT ONLINE

On 28 June, a news release advised that a new campaign has been launched by the Attorney General, warning of the legal consequences of prejudicing the judicial process via social media.  The #ThinkBeforeYouPost campaign aims to highlight the dangers of committing contempt of court online.  The campaign will provide advice and guidance on what information, if posted publicly, could leave social media users at risk of being held in contempt of court.
