On 4th July 2010 The Metro obtained a High Court injunction against "all persons responsible for the publication and/or distribution" of a Metro spoof paper that was distributed by campaigners at London tube stations on Friday morning. http://www.indymedia.org.uk/en/2010/07/454790.html

The Guardian have now picked up on the story, http://www.guardian.co.uk/media/greenslade/2010/jul/05/...ialaw.

The outcome of todays court hearing, which appears to have included demands by Associated Newspapers for Indymedia to remove the spoof paper will be known later today.
