In Missingham v Shamin [2012] NSWSC 288 the Supreme Court of New South Wales has granted a permanent injunction to restrain the husband of mediation participant Dr Larissa Koroleva from breaching the confidentiality provisions of a deed of settlement.

Ward J found that publication of information - in Missingham v Shamin [2011] NSWSC 1208 - regarding the initial proceedings in defamation litigation did not absolve the woman's husband (Mr Alex Shamin) and that limited disclosure did not mean the confidentiality provision was of any lesser utility.
