ACC Defamation Case Proceeds
PRIVACY LAW—NEW ZEALANDJuly 19, 2012
A defamation case brought by ACC Minister Judith Collins will proceed, stuff.co.nz reports. Collins has accused MPs Trevor Mallard and Andrew Little of defamation in relation to a leaked e-mail from “ACC claimant Bronwyn Pullar, who blew the whistle on ACC inadvertently releasing her details about thousands of ACC claimants,” the report states. The next court date is set for November and will be a settlement conference where the parties involved can attempt to resolve the issues before trial. A trial date has been scheduled for February.
