Rebel Wilson Set To Take Bauer Defamation To The High Court

Rebel Wilson’s ongoing legal stoush with Bauer Media shows no signs of going away with news the actor is set to take the matter all the way to the High Court.

News Corp is reporting that Wilson lodged an application on Wednesday for special leave to appeal the decision.

In September last year, Wilson successfully sued Bauer Media after its stable of women’s glossies portrayed the 38-year-old as a serial liar. At the time Wilson was awarded a staggering $4.5 million payout, however that was overturned on appeal in mid-June and her sum reduced to just $600,000.

It’s understood that Wilson had already spent that and more on legal fees fighting Bauer.

Following June’s decision, Wilson tweeted she would immediately instruct her lawyers to appeal.

News is reporting Wilson’s latest appeal will be heard by two High Court judges in Canberra, while Bauer has three weeks to respond to convince the judges that there is no grounds for an appeal.

Wilson will apparently lodge a graph showing she received as many as 10 offers for film and TV roles before the publication of the Bauer articles, but “the ­applicant received no such offers after publication of the articles in 2015 or throughout 2016”.
