University of Southampton & Howlett v Mohtasham [2012] EWHC 1630 (QB)

Case Summary  |   8 November 2012


This was a three week trial in the Queen’s Bench Division in which Jessie Bowhill acted for the successful Claimants. The Defendant in that case had over the course of eight years published allegations throughout the world that the University of Southampton and leading academics in the field of nuclear non-proliferation had plagiarised her work, and discriminated against her on the grounds of race and sex. In his Judgment of 8 November 2012 Deputy Judge Pittaway QC held that the Defendant’s allegations were false and made maliciously, and amounted to harassment and intimidation of the individuals concerned.
