What goes around comes around...

Sweet, poetic justice.

Documentary producer wins defamation damages

The producer of a controversial documentary that depicted teenage girls talking about their sex lives has been awarded damages for defamation by a Canberra court.

Dennis O'Rourke successfully sued Indigenous rights activist Stephen Hagan for implying to a journalist that he was unscrupulous in making the film Cunnamulla.

Nationwide News has also been sued for publishing Mr Hagan's comments in The Daily Telegraph six years ago.

The ACT Supreme Court today ordered $200,000 be paid to Mr O'Rourke.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!
