High Court rejects challenge over status of UK's press regulator
The UK's officially recognised press regulator, Impress, has fought off a High Court challenge over its status.
The News Media Association (NMA), which represents publishers, said Impress should not have been given formal approval a year ago by the Press Recognition Panel (PRP), which was set up under a royal charter after the Leveson inquiry.
NMA said the PRP misinterpreted and misapplied the charter.
But in London on Thursday, Lady Justice Rafferty and Mr Justice Popplewell rejected its case.
