Naomi Campbell win UK libel case
LONDON, England (AP) — Model Naomi Campbell accepted libel damages Thursday from a British newspaper over a story that falsely claimed she was planning an elephant polo match in India for her partner's birthday.
The November article in the Daily Telegraph said Campbell was going to organise the tournament in Jodhpur for partner Vladimir Doronin's 50th birthday. The article included criticisms from animal-welfare activists.
Campbell's lawyer Gideon Benaim told a judge at London's High Court that the story was "simply false and the criticisms unfounded."
