Channel 7 settles case with Corby's mum Rosleigh Rose

Rosleigh Rose
Out of court ... Rosleigh Rose has agreed to a deal with Channel 7.
  • Channel 7 reaches settlement with Rosleigh Rose
  • Follows defamation victory by Mercedes Cordy
  • Legal action launched over Today Tonight interview

CHANNEL 7 has reached a confidential settlement with Rosleigh Rose, the mother of convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby, over the Jodie Power interview.

Ms Rose sued the network over an interview with the former best friend of her other daughter, Mercedes, which was broadcast on the Today Tonight program on February 14 last year.

She claimed the interview with Ms Power implied she had sold, possessed and trafficked marijuana and had caused Schapelle to import the drug into Bali.

Ms Rose claimed the interview also implied she posed a threat to Ms Power's life and safety.

Mercedes Corby won a similar suit earlier this month, with a jury finding she had been defamed by Ms Power's allegations.

After that verdict, Seven settled with Ms Corby out of court for an undisclosed sum.

Lawyers for Seven today told NSW Supreme Court Justice Lucy McCallum they had offered Ms Rose a similar settlement, and the matter would not proceed.

Ms Rose was not in court today.
