Seven Delays Amber Harrison’s Court Statement Over Fear Of “Scandalous Material”

Journalists who packed into the NSW Supreme Court this morning to hear what Amber Harrison had to say about the legal costs associated with her aborted suing of former employer Seven West Media have been left disappointed.

Harrison was due to dial into court this morning to read a statement she prepared around the issue, after agreeing to a court-ordered gag order that prevents her from talking publicly about her affair with Seven West Media CEO Tim Worner or releasing sensitive documents that are allegedly in her possession.

However, Seven’s lawyers prevented Harrison from reading the statement this morning so they could have time to look over it and check if it contained any “scandalous material” that was contrary to the gag order or unrelated to the issue of legal costs, according to the ABC.

As a result, Seven’s lawyers deemed all but the last four paragraphs inappropriate to read out, giving Harrison the chance to amend her statement and read it in court tomorrow when the case resumes at 2pm.

Harrison expressed her eagerness “to be heard” in court via Twitter yesterday afternoon, and followed it up with another post an hour later.

Worner’s former lover could also face some seriously big legal costs from Seven over allegations that she continued to brief reporters in breach of a confidentiality agreement, the ABC reported.

Seven’s lawyers told the court yesterday morning that Harrison boasted about orchestrating a “vindictive” and “arrogant” media campaign to embarrass Worner about their affair in emails to a co-worker.
