Connor Wins Case
Dec. 01 2005

Shane Connor (Joe Scully) has won his unfair dismissal case against Grundy Television. Justice Robert Osborn found in favour of Connor at the Victorian Supreme Court on Wednesday 30th November, and ordered Grundy to pay him $196,709 in damages. Connor was sacked and escorted from the set in September 2003 after months of alleged negligence and misconduct, but Justice Osborn felt that there was no evidence to back up the reasons for his dismissal. Connor did not appear at the verdict, as he is currently in the UK, preparing to appear in panto. It is not currently known whether Grundy will appeal the decision.
