Date set for UK nurse inquest

The UK Inquest into 2Day's tragic nurse prank call will take place at the Royal Courts of Justice in London on September 11 and 12.

ACMA will appeal to High Court in nurse case

Thursday 21 August, 2014

The ACMA has been given approval to appeal to the High Court in the 'royal prank call' case.

In March this year, the federal court upheld 2Day’s argument that the ACMA did not have the authority to rule on whether 2Day had broken the law by broadcasting a prank call to the Duchess of Cambridge in December 2012.

The ruling was part of a legal battle aimed at surpressing the ACMA's investigation report on the case.

Today back in court over ACMA royal prank investigation

Today FM is spending yet another day in court today, appealing the most recent decision by the Federal Court to allow the ACMA to continue its investigation on the 'Royal Prank' incident.

So far, the ACMA and Australian Federal Police have been investigating whether Today FM breached any criminal legislation (and thus licence conditions), by broadcasting the infamous audio of former Hot 30 Countdown hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian imitating the Queen in order to receive information on a pregnant Kate Middleton.

SCA appears at Saldanha inquest

Wednesday 27 March, 2013

Lawyers for Southern Cross Austereo have appeared before a London coroners court in the inquest into the death of Jacintha Saldanha.

The King Edward VII hospital has disputed claims by SCA that the station called the hospital back several times to inform the nurses that the prank call would be broadcast. Even though SCA is an Australian company, with no jurisdiction in a UK court, the company was granted 'interested observer' status to give SCA lawyers a chance to address the court.

British nurse inquest to focus on hospital protocols

Sunday 24 March, 2013

With British police ruling out charges being laid against 2Day-FM and the two announcers who were at the centre of hoax call to the King Edward VII hospital last year, the inquest into the suicide of nurse Jacintha Saldanha which reopens at Westminster Coroner's Court on Tuesday, is likely to focus on the hospital’s role in the incident.

Lessons learnt from tragic prank

Wednesday 12 December, 2012

Comment from Steve Ahern.

Last Tuesday was ratings day, but Southern Cross Austereo publicists were unusually silent about the results. There were no media releases issued, as a gesture of respect for nurse Jacintha Saldanha, and presumably because anything remotely resembling glee at a good result would likely be taken badly by many people watching the company’s responses after the prank that went so badly wrong.
