LONDON (AP) -- Kate Winslet's new husband has won an injunction in a British court to stop a tabloid newspaper publishing photos of him at a costume party.

The High Court ruled Tuesday in favor of Ned Rocknroll, issuing an order preventing The Sun from running the images pending the outcome of his invasion of privacy claim. Lawyers for The Sun say the photos show Rocknroll partly naked.

The nephew of Virgin media tycoon Richard Branson says there is no public interest in running the 2010 photos. His lawyers argue Winslet's children could be bullied as a result of publication.

Rocknroll says he had been a "relative nobody" prior to his marriage to Winslet last month.

Judge Michael Briggs says he'll offer his reasoning for the decision later.
