British court relief for Woods


British law firm Schillings obtained the injunction on Woods' behalf on Thursday at the High Court in London, partner Simon Smith told Reuters by phone on Friday.  A letter from the lawyers accompanying the injunction contains a statement that "this Order is not to be taken as an admission that any such photographs exist."

The court order, a copy of which was published by the US celebrity gossip website TMZ.com, prohibits the publication in the United Kingdom of "Any photographs, footage or images taken or obtained of the Claimant naked or any naked parts of the Claimant's body or of him involved in any sexual activity."

US and British tabloid newspapers and media websites have published comments from and photos of a parade of women, including cocktail waitresses and porn stars, who have claimed relationships with Woods.

Without specifically admitting any of the alleged affairs, Woods has asked that his private life be respected.
