BAUER MEDIA RESPONDS TO JUDGEMENT
Bauer Media has responded to today’s judgement.
Speaking on behalf of Bauer Media, General Counsel, Adrian Goss, said:
“It was important for us to revisit the award of damages. The legal process has run its course and Bauer welcomes the court’s decision to set aside the entire award of damages for economic loss. We will consider the implications of the judgement in relation to the cap on defamation damages, which has broader implications for the media industry. In the lead up to today, major media organisations united in an unprecedented way to support Bauer's appeal in relation to that issue.”
