‘A former lawyer for Meriton Property Services is suing one of the country’s richest men, billionaire Harry Triguboff, and the company, alleging he was sacked because he refused to lie in an affidavit.
The company’s former group general counsel Joseph Callaghan is suing for $556,500 in compensation plus penalties, claiming he was fired from his $350,000-a-year job by the 87-year-old property developer earlier this year because he refused to exaggerate the time it took for the City of Sydney council to approve one of Meriton’s buildings.’
THEN it appears to have gotten nastier … in an AFR Report on 3 July 2020 when HT hit back at his former lawyer to then claim that Callaghan was sacked because of ‘ineptitude’ for the job … despite having gotten HT out of bother a number of times previously over four years … even with the NSW Premier …
THIS MATTER WAS HEADED FOR THE COURT END OF SEPTEMBER 2020 … HOWEVER …
It was reported on 19 August … HT & HIS COMPANY MERITON SETTLED WITH FORMER GROUP GENERAL COUNSEL
Now it is alleged it was all a misunderstanding …
BUT had the General Counsel had enough? Was it a bridge too far this time?
