Defamation Claim Successfully Defended

Our principal solicitor and team of barristers settled a defamation claim against our client. The matter was listed for hearing at the District Court of NSW this month with an estimate of 4 days (meaning significant legal costs!). The case was prepared in such a way that (in our view) placed pressure on the plaintiff to agree to a settlement that our client felt was reasonable. This included issuing subpoenas that would reveal the plaintiff’s pre-existing conditions (diminishing $s for damages), serving evidence contrary to the plaintiff’s claimed impact of the defamatory imputations, and requesting financial records which we suspected the plaintiff would not be able to produce as proof of loss.

We would like to take the opportunity to congratulate our team and our client on a successful resolution.
