Seven West Media has issued its one and only statement following the ruling in the NSW Supreme Court that Amber Harrison is liable for all of Seven’s legal costs following her action relating to her extra-marital affair with Seven CEO, Tim Worner.
Seven’s statement read in full:
Seven West Media welcomes the Supreme Court decision today.
The Court found that Ms Harrison engaged in numerous breaches of the settlement deed and her employment contract and these breaches were persistent and flagrant.
It found that Seven had every entitlement to commence proceedings under the Deed and conducted the proceedings in an entirely orthodox and proper fashion.
The Court also rejected Ms Harrison’s contention that her rights under the settlement deed were manipulated by Seven.
The Court also found that Ms Harrison was given every opportunity to desist from her breaches, consent to the orders earlier and settle with Seven West Media from 27 February 2017.
Ultimately, Ms Harrison put on no evidence in support of her claims, which the Court held was because no such evidence existed.
It is regrettable that people Ms Harrison falsely and unfairly named in her failed Human Rights Commission complaint were forced to take separate proceedings to protect their names.
Seven West Media looks forward to putting this matter behind us.
