EXAMPLE OF FORMAT.


Title and Citation
Madhavan Nair v. P.P
[1974] HCA 33

Facts
The accused ( or name ) is a New York-headquartered publishing company that operates
WSJ.com, a subscription-based news web site with its servers in New Jersey. WSJ.com
provided access to content from Barron’s Online, which reproduces articles and images
from the print version of Barron’s magazine, a Dow Jones publication. An article
published in Barron’s Online on October 28, 2000 made references to the respondent,
Joseph Gutnick, a resident of state of Victoria in Australia. Gutnick alleged the references
to him were defamatory under Australian law.

Gutnick filed a suit in the Supreme Court of Victoria against Dow Jones claiming
damages for defamation. Process was served on Dow Jones outside Australia in
accordance with Rule 7.01(1) of the Supreme Court (General Civil Procedure) Rules
1996.
The High Court judge in the case disagreed and dismissed the application by Dow Jones on grounds that the statements by Dow Jones had been published in Victoria when subscribers there accessed them
online.
Dow Jones appealed to the Court of Appeal, which refused to hear the appeal
on the grounds that the lower court’s decision was “plainly correct.”

Issues
Whether online materials written in the United States and stored on servers in New Jersey
may be deemed to have been published in Victoria, Australia when accessed through the
World Wide Web there, whether such materials may be subject to the defamation law of
Victoria and whether the courts of Victoria are an appropriate forum for the litigation of a
defamation claim related to such materials.
Reasoning

Chief Justice Gleeson / Justices McHugh ruled that for the purposes of defamation, a statement may be deemed to be “published,” and defamation therefore occurs, in the place where the statement is comprehended by a third party, rather than in the location where the publisher initially issues or releases the statement. The court rejected Dow Jones’s argument in favor of a “single publication”
rule for online materials in favor of the standards that apply to more traditional modes of
communication under established common law precedents.

Held
The court was unanimous in its decision to dismiss the appeal by Dow Jones, holding that the lower court did not err in refusing to stay the proceedings against Dow Jones, and ordered Dow Jones to pay costs. The ruling allowed Gutnick’s suit against Dow Jones to proceed in the court of first instance in Victoria.
