Ex-racing boss Mosley seeks privacy-case appeal

BY foxsports • June 2, 2011

Max Mosley's lawyers say they have filed an appeal against the ex-Formula One chief's failed bid to change United Kingdom privacy laws.

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.
