Magazine to be prosecuted over Lawrence article

A magazine is being prosecuted for potentially putting the Stephen Lawrence trial in danger of collapse.

The Spectator is accused of breaching a court order, which prevents prejudicial material being published before jurors had reached verdicts.

An article written by Rod Liddle during the trial called defendants Gary Dobson and David Norris "disgusting racists."

The trial judge claimed the article breached three specific sections of the contempt order placed on the case and he reported the magazine to the Attorney General for contempt of court.
