Ex-racing boss Mosley seeks privacy-case appeal

Max Mosley’s lawyers say they have filed an appeal against the

ex-Formula One chief’s failed bid to change United Kingdom privacy


Last month, Mosley lost his case at the European Court of Human

Rights to force newspapers to warn people before exposing details

of their private lives.

Mosley’s lawyers said Thursday they are seeking a hearing before

the European court’s ”Grand Chamber” – the last legal option in

his long campaign for tighter privacy laws.

Mosley won a lawsuit against Britain’s News of the World tabloid

for a 2008 front-page story claiming he had a Nazi-themed orgy with

five women. Mosley, the son of a former fascist leader,

acknowledged the orgy but denied the Nazi theme.
