Costs order would be pointless: Harrison

July 12, 2017

Former Seven employee Amber Harrison says there would be no point making her pay legal costs.

Former executive assistant Amber Harrison has asked a judge to dismiss Seven West Media's application for her to pay all the company's legal costs, telling a Sydney court she should not be punished for taking a stand.

Ms Harrison, who had a two-year affair with the media company's boss Tim Worner, abandoned her case against Seven late last week ahead of a scheduled four-day hearing due to start on Monday.

The company's lawyer has sought six declarations and orders including one requiring Ms Harrison to pay all Seven's legal costs.

But Ms Harrison said in a phone call to the NSW Supreme Court on Wednesday that a court order for costs would be "punitive and pointless" as she would never have the resources to pay Seven.
