U.K. to Issue Contempt Warnings to Users of Twitter and Facebook

The U.K. will share warnings on limits to discussing court cases with users of social-media networks such as Twitter and Facebook, Attorney General Dominic Grieve said today.

Advisory notices previously only sent to the print and broadcast media will be posted on a U.K. government website and sent via the Twitter feed of Grieve’s department. They are intended to ensure trials are fair and remind publishers they need to comply with the Contempt of Court Act of 1981, Grieve said.

“I hope that by making this information available to the public at large, we can help stop people from inadvertently breaking the law, and make sure that cases are tried on the evidence, not what people have found online,” Grieve said in an e-mail today.
