Fair­fax hit for 6 over Gayle tale

The Daily Examiner - - NEWS -

CRICKETING su­per­star Chris Gayle has won a defama­tion case against Fair­fax, with a jury find­ing he did not ex­pose his pe­nis to a fe­male masseur and that the pub­lisher was mo­ti­vated by mal­ice in re­port­ing the al­le­ga­tion.

The jury of three women and one man de­ter­mined it was not true Gayle ex­posed his gen­i­tals to Leanne Rus­sell in the West Indies team dress­ing room dur­ing a train­ing ses­sion at the 2015 World Cup.

The jury also found Fair­fax was mo­ti­vated by mal­ice when it pub­lished the al­le­ga­tions in a se­ries of ar­ti­cles in The Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald, The Age and the Can­berra Times.
