Bauer Media will appeal the quantum of damages in the recent defamation judgement involving actress Rebel Wilson.
Bauer Media General Counsel Adrian Goss says: "It's important for us to revisit this unprecedented decision on the quantum of damages, which also has broad implications for the media industry."
Last month, Bauer Media was ordered to pay Hollywood actress Rebel Wilson more than $4.5 million dollars in damages.
Wilson sued Bauer over a series of defamatory articles published in Woman’s Day, Australian Women’s Weekly, New Weekly and OK!
The jury ruled in Wilson's favour in June, agreeing the articles unfairly painted her as a serial liar who had faked her way to a Hollywood career.
