Legal showdown in Somers Group dispute

A legal stand-off between Daryl Somers and his former business manager Alex Mathey is headed to the Supreme Court.

A year ago Alex Mathey, former chief executive and group legal counsel for Daryl Somers, Julie Somers and Somers Group Australia, issued a detailed statement via AAP Medianet complaining of an employee dispute and a frustration in resolving the matters.

In a statement Daryl & Julie Somers then said: “We are aware of allegations recently reported online and in the media regarding Somers Group Australia. The allegations that have been reported are utterly false and without foundation.  We are obtaining legal advice and will not be commenting further.“

The Herald Sun now reports documents filed with the court show Somers is claiming damages over and seeking a permanent injunction restraining “further publishing, republishing or causing to be published or republished” material.

Hey Hey its Saturday will mark its 50th anniversary in October.
