Palmer responds to Federal Court judgment

Billionaire Clive Palmer has responded to the Federal Court judgment which found both he and Premier Mark McGowan defamed each other during their vicious war of words in 2020.

Delivering his judgment on Tuesday Justice Michael Lee said the defences of both sides to allegations of defamation had failed and the back-and-forth barbs had been defamatory.

But because the Federal Court judge found that both were involved in political argument — as nasty as it was — finding “real or material” damage was almost impossible.
