Oscar winner Geoffrey Rush wins #MeToo defamation case



Oscar-winning actor Geoffrey Rush has won more than $600,000 and could receive millions of dollars more, after successfully arguing that an Australian tabloid newspaper defamed him with a #MeToo story.

"This was a recklessly irresponsible piece of sensational journalism of the worst kind," Justice Michael Wigney said of two articles published about Rush in 2017.

The actor could be awarded a much larger sum in a follow-up hearing on May 10, after the judge ruled that the paper's reporting caused Rush financial loss which could continue into the future.
