McLachlan seeks $6.5m in defamation


Actor Craig McLachlan is seeking special damages of $6.5 million in his defamation case against Fairfax Media and the ABC, a judge has been told.

Mr McLachlan is suing the companies and former costar Christie Whelan Browne over articles and reports claiming he bullied and indecently assaulted her and two other female cast members during a 2014 production of The Rocky Horror Show.
