Marco takes US papers to court

Marco takes US papers to court

MARCO Pierre White is claiming libel damages for articles published in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune just weeks after receiving settlement over an article published by the Mirror.

The chef is claiming up to £100,000 over an article which appeared in the New York Times on 13 May, entitled "In London, a big talent with a dash of gall".

He has also issued a High Court writ over an article in the International Herald Tribune on May 15 with the headline: "A hot chef, and holy terror rules London".

Last month White received an apology and payment of his legal fees for claimed libel and slander from restaurateur Tony Allan, chairman of the Bank Group.

Allan received the writ the day after an article appeared in the Mirror in April in which White's name was mentioned.
