An injunction preventing the reporting in England and Wales of allegations about the private life of a celebrity can be lifted, judges have ruled.
The Sun On Sunday had appealed the injunction, which prevented it from publishing allegations about the man’s extra-marital activities.
It said information had been published abroad and could be found online.
Court of Appeal judges gave leave for an appeal and ruled the story must not be published until it had been heard.
The man took legal action earlier this year after the Sunday tabloid newspaper tried to publish allegations about him.
Two Court of Appeal judges later imposed the injunction, which prevents him being named in England and Wales.
However, lawyers for News Group Newspapers – publishers of the Sun On Sunday – asked judges to lift the ban.
Three Court of Appeal judges ruled the injunction should be set aside, but gave the man leave to appeal.
