Charges of Contumacious Contempt of Court by Gillian Norman, (Gi Linda) publisher of Nightcap Nightmare Blog, were heard yesterday, May 14, in NSW Supreme Court before Justice Sackar.
Gillian Norman was charged with breaking Court Orders that prohibit republication of defamatory imputations. Represented by barrister Kieran Smark SC, thanks to a referral from Justice Sackar to NSW Bar Association, Gillian Norman does not admit any contempt.
The criminal charges were brought by Adrian Brennock and Phillip Dixon, as principals in Nightcap Village, a prospective Northern Rivers land-share venture, in relation to a 2020 defamation judgement in their favour: Darwin v Norman  NSWSC 357.
Justice Sackar deferred judgement and will give his decision at a second hearing that will determine penalty, if applicable.
