Sydney Morning Herald’s Adele Ferguson seeks comment from Levitt Robinson’s Stewart Levitt on controversial defamation proceedings funded by CBA.
As reported by Adele Ferguson in the Sydney Morning Herald newspaper this morning, the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) is funding an action in defamation being brought against Mr Fraser by Brendan French, the head of customer relations for the CBA group of companies. Ms Ferguson quoted Principal Stewart Levitt as follows:
It has been touted by Fraser’s lawyer, Stewart Levitt at Levitt Robinson, as a David versus Goliath case. A case where David has no money and Goliath is seeking retribution and deterrence.
“In this case David doesn’t have two bob from what I can tell. He has never been able to commercialise what he is doing because he does a lot of things for nothing.”
