'Snapper' Mallard surprises defamation papers server
Labour MP Trevor Mallard says a woman made an appointment at his electorate office under a fake name so she could serve him with defamation papers on behalf of ACC minister Judith Collins.
Mr Mallard took a photograph of the woman yesterday after she handed him the papers then posted it to his Twitter account.
He says she claimed she had a problem with hospital treatment when the appointment was made.
Mr Mallard and fellow Labour MP Andrew "Stuart" Little are facing defamation action from Ms Collins for comments they made relating to the source of leaked ACC documents.
Mr Little was served his papers last week.
Ms Collins wants a High Court judge to declare she was defamed by the pair and to order them to pay her legal costs.
