The petition made by the Princess Letizia’s sister, Telma Ortiz Rocasolano, for a court order to restrain the paparazzi following the birth of their son, has been denied and she has been ordered to pay court costs of about €42,000. She had taken action against 57 newspapers and magazines to try and stop them photographing her without permission and talking and writing about her private life, but Judge María Lourdes Pérez Padilla of the court in Toledo denied ruled that her request lacked “judicial viability”, given that as the Princess’s sister she was a public figure. The judge also rejected claims of “possible physical danger”. The irony of the case is that photos of Telma Ortiz were plastered all over the papers and magazine covers for most of last week.
