Rann v Seven deadline

Channel Seven has until today to respond to a defamation claim by South Australian Premier Mike Rann, following a story on Sunday Night in November.

In the story, an interview with former waitress Michelle Chantelois made claims about a personal relationship with the premier that attracted national headlines.

“Seven broadcast the utterances with reckless indifference to the truth of the account of Ms Chantelois and with the malicious intent of causing embarrassment and harm for Mr Rann,” his claim says.

Seven must either file its defence today or ask the Supreme Court to grant it an extension.
