Social Media Misuse and Cyber-Bullying 

Online acts such as trolling and cyber-bullying can cause someone distress and alarm to its victims.  If you have been a victim of a course of conduct of this nature then it might amount to harassment and give rise to a not only a civil claim, but also a criminal action.

Civil action can be taken to protect victims from sources of harassment, including online activities such as cyber-bullying and other forms of social media abuse.  Civil remedies available to address the harassing conduct include obtaining an injunction to restrain the relevant person and damages to compensate for anxiety and any financial loss resulting from the harassment.  These can be pursued not only by the victim of the harassment, but also a third party whose behaviour the harassment is intended to impact on.

A report against someone pursuing a course of conduct that amounts to harassment may also be made to the Police for further investigation.  If the Police and/or Crown Prosecution Service are reluctant to intervene on your behalf, Lupton Fawcett can assist in ensuring that either there is the appropriate intervention from the authorities or take action on your behalf. Such options include the use of injunctions or private prosecution.
