The French court's verdict in the suit of former world motorsport chief Max Mosley against a British tabloid that accused him of taking part in a Nazi-themed orgy has been delayed until November 8 for technical reasons, reported the New Zealand Herald.
According to Reuters, this is Mosley's second suit against Rupert Murdoch's News Group. In the first case, Mosley sued for a breach of privacy in British court after the News of the World published a front-page story in 2008 showing photographs of Mosley with five prostitutes.
Mosley won 60,000 pounds in damages and 450,000 pounds in costs, reported Reuters.
The New Zealand Herald reports that his current case charges News Group in France of violating his private life and defamation by distributing the newspaper containing the images.
If successful, Mosly could be awarded up to 2000,000 euros in damages, the New Zealand Haerald reported.
