Famous British writer JK Rowling feels fully vindicated after the apology of Daily Mail that was read aloud in London’s High Court.

A false article that Daily Mail published about Rowling in 2013 says she was stigmatized by churchgoers in the 1990’s. In May 2014 the apology was printed and substantial damage was paid to Rowling. However, Daily Mail challenged Rowling’s right to give statements in court about the case.

Last week the newspaper’s objections were dismissed by the Court of Appeal. Thus, on Thursday one-side statement was read out by lawyer Keith Schilling on behalf of Rowling.

Author said that the newspaper’s story was written on the false picture of an article, she had written several days before. That was the article for single parents’ charity Gingerbread.

The two-page statement repeated that JK Rowling never criticized or complained about her treatment with churchgoers.

She had in fact spoken about her time working at the local church with immense gratitude

According to MR Schilling, claimant though her solicitors asked to remove the online article and to publish an apology. The defendant refused to do that, and claimed the article was not slandering the claimant for several month.

The conclusion of the statement said that the author was left “understandably distressed”. But now she is happy that all her libel proceedings are closed.
