Colin Craig loses again, case against Granny for Facebook comments struck out

Colin Craig (both of them) with the interviewer and Mr X

Colin Craig has lost another case, the case where he was suing a very nice lady who used to work for him for a comment she made on Facebook and for comments she never made as well.

It has been struck out by Judge GM Harrison in the Auckland District Court.

The key paragraphs from the judgment issued late yesterday are as follows:  

In my opinion his pursuit of Mrs Stiekema has been appalling. This was all about an employment case ten years ago where Mrs Stiekema won damages and costs. Once again Colin Craig has pursued someone to cause them harm, pain and suffering.

Let’s hope he doesn’t continue vexing this poor lady who wants nothing to do with him.

He should give up his lawfare and his bullying and accept that he is not the perfect man.

The full judgment is below.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
