$1.75 million sought for alleged 'character assassination'
David Bain supporter Joe Karam is seeking $1.75 million in damages for an alleged “character assassination” launched on social media.
The four-day trial wrapped up today at Auckland High Court.
Mr Karam, a former All Black, claims 94 defamatory statements were made about him across four websites after Mr Bain’s acquittal. Many of the remarks referred to legal aid funding and questioned Mr Karam’s motives for supporting Mr Bain.
