Imogen Thomas and the super injunction

It's in the news thanks to the missive from Mr Justice Eady which just goes to highlight how bad the privacy laws (or lack thereof) are in the UK.

The Judge's decision to award the injunction was based on "ample reason not to trust" Imogen and that "appeared strongly to suggest that the claimant was being blackmailed". Except no charge of blackmail seems to be forthcoming.

So Imogen has had her reputation damaged by allegations of blackmail. As injunctions are ordered to protect reputation doesn't this mean that Imogen could have had an injunction taken out against Eady to prevent him publishing this, or that now it's out pursue him in court on a charge of libel.

I'd like to see her sue him.
