A British tabloid has been ordered to hand over documents relating to a story which falsely claimed music mogul Louis Walsh sexually attacked a man in a toilet.

Leonard Watters, a dance teacher from Ireland, was sentenced to six months in prison over allegations that the X Factor judge groped him in Dublin nightclub Krystle in April 2011.

Now a high court judge has ruled that The Sun newspaper must give Walsh all documents associated with the article by crime writer Joanne McElgunn, headlined ‘Louis probed over “sex attack” on man in loo’.

All documents identifying or referring to any payments made or offered by the newspaper to Watters and statements of McElgunn's expenses should also be provided, reported The Guardian.

That includes any evidence of a hotel booking for Watters, bank statements, text messages, emails and phone records.

Last July, Walsh admitted that he considered suicide following the claims, insisting that the ordeal has affected his personality forever.

He subsequently sued The Sun’s publishers News Group Newspapers, for damages for defamation.

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask! seo analysis
