Wikipedia: James Purnell #3

It’s September 2006, and Sean is back to edit the record about Purnell’s involvement in the Liz Davies affair. He removes the word ‘court’ from ‘out of court settlement’, and changes ‘allegations’ to ‘misunderstanding’. It’s almost as if it had never happened…

And once again, the description of his edit gives away more than the edit itself: Red Pepper story is inaccurate – no record exists in the High Court of this case, hence an out of court settlement was not a possibility”. It also reveals his ignorance of the law & legal process – an out of court settlement is, by definition, not in Court, but this doesn’t mean it never existed in the first place.
