UK court lifts injunction vs Wall Street Journal

LONDON (AP) — A British court has lifted an injunction preventing the Wall Street Journal from publishing the names of traders who may be implicated in the rate-rigging case involving the London interbank offered rate, or LIBOR.

The Southwark Crown Court's decision came in a case surrounding former trader Tom Hayes, who was arrested last year. British authorities contacted the individuals last month and said their role in the alleged conspiracy was being examined.

Dow Jones & Co. published the names on several of its platforms last week, noting in the story that the list could change, and that inclusion didn't mean the individuals would be charged with a crime. The names were removed after the order, but will be restored.

The court lifted the injunction, but omitted the names in court documents.
