Anyone care to guess who might be funding this?
Karol did her usual research. It looks like the name on the application is Cameron John Slater. But really? This is the clown who has been pleading poverty and representing himself against Matthew Blomfield. Now he has the money to try to get High Court injunctions?
I guess National just don’t want their dirty politics to keep driving their electability down eh?
NO 7 COURT BEFORE THE HON. JUSTICE FOGARTY
CIV2014-404-2272 CAMERON JOHN SLATER v APN NEW ZEALAND LIMITED & ORS
(J R Billington QC) (.) (.) (.) (.)
Interim Injunction Application 1st
Whaleoil blogger Cameron Slater is going to the High Court in an effort to stop media publishing information taken by the hacker known as Rawshark.
The blogger has filed papers with the court seeking to ban media and the hacker from any further publication of his emails and social media conversations.
In a case to be heard tomorrow in the High Court at Auckland, Slater will ask for a legal halt to use of the information by the New Zealand Herald, TV3 and Fairfax Media. He also wants the news organisations to turn over to him the information they have.
h/t: Tim Murphy and Karol
Updated: The strangest thing is that Cameron Slater himself in defending himself from a defamation case by Matthew Blomfield has been arguing that material copied unlawfully is not ‘stolen’ and in anyhow is in the public interest to be published by a “news medium”.
The level of personal hypocrisy by this despicable ‘blogger’ is simply breathtaking..
Updated: In the unlikely event that whaledump / rawshark is prevented from publicizing the appalling behaviour that Cameron Slater and his National handlers have been up to over the last 7 years, I’ll be happy to organize some popup domains, homes for them, and directions to them. I would consider it to be part of my public service obligations to my society – the moderation and elimination of arseholes and their behaviours. 😈
Besides which, if the media get injuncted against reporting directly on the dumps, the story for the media can then move to being about the other bloggers reactions to Cameron Slater and his despicable behaviour. The media will be familiar with how that game is played. They have been doing it with David Farrar for more than a decade and with Whaleoil for a shorter period of time.
