News Corp Appeals Ruling In Geoffrey Rush Defamation Suit

On Monday, News Corp’s Australian arm appealed a judgment that awarded Geoffrey Rush $594,000 in defamation damages.

News Corp published articles saying that Rush had behaved inappropriately toward a co-star in a production of “King Lear.” The Federal Court ruled that News Corp’s Daily Telegraph tabloid in Sydney had failed to prove the stories were true.

According to Reuters, on Monday, the newspaper said in a report that there were 16 grounds for its appeal.
