Radio New Zealand win 12 year court case

Staff Writer

Radio New Zealand has won a court case against them that has been running since 2002.

The public broadcaster was taken to court by their former managing editor Lynne Snowdon (right) who was sacked in April 2005 after she spent nearly 2 years on sick leave.

She accused RNZ of unjustifiably dismissing her and of fraud and was also claiming she was disadvantaged by what had happened.

The judge dismissed all 3 claims.

In 2010 Snowdon lost an appeal claiming that RNZ had provided altered or false documents in its case against her and that some documents had been destroyed.
