Kate Howe -v- Broseley Town Council and others
There continues to be much discussion regarding this matter publicly and on social media and so it is important to point out a number of facts.
It is a matter of public record that Kate Howe brought a claim against Broseley Town Council and some individually named councillors in 2020. There is, on the HMCTS website, a transcript of her claim and her application for Interim Relief for payment her salary until the matter was concluded. The decision of the judge in that application is also available and I note that there has been much discussion of his views on the application and his decision in granting the interim relief that the claimant was seeking.
It must be pointed out that this decision was made by the Judge before the Council had filed their lengthy and very detailed defence to this claim and before any documentary evidence supporting the defence had been produced to the Claimant, her solicitors or the tribunal and so is based only on her version of events. It in no way reflects the full facts relating to this issue.
Following the filing of the defence and exchange of a substantial number of documents in defence of this claim the Claimant agreed to settle the claim. The terms of this settlement are strictly confidential and discussion or disclosure of them could lead to further action being taken by the Claimant against the Council for damages as well as the costs of such an action. If the Council were to face such a claim it could, and would be advised to, pursue a counterclaim against any Councillor who is proved to have released the information in breach of the settlement agreement.
Requests for disclosure of information regarding the settlement will not be allowed as this is a confidential agreement.
The discussion of this case whether on social media or in any public or private setting must cease in order to avoid putting the Council at risk of this potential claim breach of the agreement.
