DEFAMA­TION

The Saturday Paper - - The Week Contents -

“Due to Fed­eral Court rul­ing a few months ago, it’s ba­si­cally a win for lawyers, as law­fare al­ways tends to be.”

– Mark Latham

The for­mer La­bor leader set­tles a defama­tion ac­tion brought against him by ABC jour­nal­ist Os­man Faruqi. It’s weird that mem­bers of One Na­tion have to com­pre­hen­sively em­bar­rass them­selves in court as part of the pre­s­e­lec­tion process, but those are the party rules.
