Jones v TCN Channel Nine Pty Limited (No 2) [2015] NSWSC 1854

DEFAMATION – pleadings – problems caused by complexity – extent of the Court’s authority and ability to force simplicity on the parties – where plaintiff had previously made a concession aimed at simplifying the issues in the proceedings – where subsequent argument brought forward by different counsel for defendants revealed unfairness to plaintiff of being held to the concession
