Sterling Law

Former Attorney-General Christian #Porter has agreed to discontinue his claim for damages against the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) after the national broadcaster published a number of articles and programs about allegations against him.

The outcome is a win for the ABC because no damages have been paid. The silver lining for Porter is that the ABC has clarified that they did not intend to suggest that Mr Porter had committed the criminal offences alleged. Also, the ABC has agreed to pay his mediation costs.
