Holness gets court injuction barring rebroadcast of 18 Degrees North
Lawyers for Prime Minister Andrew Holness have obtained an injunction barring Television Jamaica (TVJ) from rebroadcasting the programme 18 Degrees North that made certain allegations about his house and tax payments.
The injunction was granted by Justice Chester Stamp in the Supreme Court Friday morning.
18 Degerees North was aired on TVJ on Monday and was scheduled to be carried again on Sunday, Holness indicated in court papers obtained by The Gleaner.

In the court documents, Holness' attorneys argued that rebroadcasting the "offending programme" would cause him more harm than it would cause TVJ if it were to be postponed.
"The proposed rebroadcast would further harm the claimant reputationally, which harm could not be compensated by any award as to damage for libel," read a section of the documents.
