Ex-Seven reporter settles legal row with network

Former Seven Adelaide reporter Amy Taeuber has reached a settlement in a long-running legal row with the network, avoiding a public trial.

Taeuber was suing the network and former boss Graham Archer, claiming the network sacked her weeks after complaining that a senior Today Tonight journalist called her a “lesbian.”

She hired profile lawyer John Laxon, in her case filed in the Federal Circuit Court after mediation through the Fair Work Commission failed.

But in December, Judge Timothy Heffernan ordered the parties back into mediation.

News Corp notes the terms of the deal remain confidential but it is believed to contain a financial settlement.

Whilst Seven continues to battle Amber Harrison in a row enveloping its CEO and Board, the Tauber case threatened to involve high profile presenters, such as TT presenter Rosanna Mangiarelli, senior executives and former staff, including sacked news director Terry Plane.
