Network TEN is being sued by a 2007 federal Labor candidate over comments by Mick Molloy aired in June last year on Roving Productions’ Before The Game.
Nicole Cornes, who didn’t win a seat at the election, is also the wife of former Adelaide AFL coach Graham Cornes. She is suing Molloy for defamation, along with TEN branches in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide, which broadcast his comments.
Molloy later made an on-air apology.
The case will be heard in Adelaide despite an attempt to move the case to Victoria.
