Clive Palmer's defamation action against Nationwide News Pty Ltd

Clive Palmer’s defamation action against Nationwide News Pty Limited, the publisher of The Australian, has suffered a major setback after Justice Boddice in the Supreme Court of Queensland struck out almost half of the imputations pleaded in his statement of claim. Justice Boddice ordered Mr Palmer to pay Nationwide’s costs of the proceeding. Tom Blackburn SC, with Patrick McCafferty of the Queensland Bar, appeared for Nationwide.
