Vi­o­la­tion costs Har­ri­son

Townsville Bulletin - - NATION -

THE for­mer lover of Seven West me­dia boss Tim Worner yes­ter­day lost what a judge de­scribed as a vit­ri­olic, scan­dalous and ul­ti­mately costly case.

Am­ber Har­ri­son could have walked away from the bit­ter fight at least four times with­out it cost­ing her a cent but she has been or­dered to re­pay $ 417,428 she re­ceived from Seven in a set­tle­ment as well as their le­gal costs – es­ti­mated to be an­other $ 200,000.

In the Supreme Court, Jus­tice John Sackar found the for­mer ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant had breached a con­tract she agreed to with Seven when she went pub­lic with de­tails of her sor­did 18- month af­fair with the mar­ried Mr Worner in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber last year.

Jus­tice John Sackar said the pro­ceed­ings “have from the out­set been en­gulfed in a vit­ri­olic at­mos­phere”.
