SUED BY FOUR RODGERS REIDY COMPANIES FOR SIMPLY TELLING THE TRUTH

RODGERS REIDY, QLD, NSW, VIC and INTERNATIONAL, all got SEVERELY UPSET by a GOOGLE ADWORDS ADVERTISEMENT campaign putting the website pleading.com.au NUMBER ONE when a search was performed for RODGERS REIDY or DAVID HAMBLETON. Without notice Gordon (publisher of the  pleading.com.au website) along with GOOGLE AUSTRALIA) were ordered by  URGENT INJUNCTION in the FEDERAL COURT SYDNEY on 1 February 2017 to cease publication of the Adwords advertisement. A  FURTHER ORDER  was made with notice on 2 February 2017 and supported by  THIS AFFIDAVIT. The  ORIGINATING APPLICATION  was subsequently listed for 28 April 2017 seeking orders essentially on behalf of David Hambleton's reputation.   
The ADWORDS CAMPAIGN had run its budget and had ALREADY BEEN REMOVED PRIOR TO THE INJUNCTION.
•    The URGENT INJUNCTION judgment delivered by Justice Bromwich on 1 February 2017
•    TO FEDERAL COURT FILE
The  Rodgers Reidy collective were given notice that the Federal Court proceeding was to be vigorously defended and counterclaimed by proving that everything published on the  pleading.com.au website was TRUE which sets out how the  RODGERS REIDY DIRECTOR DAVID HAMBLETON  treats people like dogs, in particular Gordon's wife and daughters, and consequently is being sued in the District Court Brisbane.
  HAMBLETON'S CONDUCT IS SET OUT AT PLEADING.COM.AU  
Gordon's defence, was to include an application to set aside the "urgent injunction" along with the counterclaim, which would potentially cost  Rodgers Reidy hundreds of thousands of dollars, at Sydney CBD lawyer rates.  
 FEDERAL COURT REPORT 28 April 2017:   Rodgers Reidy were served with  GORDON's DRAFT ORDERS  seeking 50 Declarations by cross-claim. At the hearing  RODGERS REIDY CHICKENED OUT and sought that their own proceedings be dismissed. This was opposed by Gordon and refused by Justice Bromwich as the Adwords  INJUNCTION and  FURTHER ORDER would remain a restraint on Gordon which he wanted set aside. By seeking their own substantive matter to be dismissed shows that idiot RODGER REIDY appeared to realise that contrary to what Hambleton says, what is published on the  pleading.com.au website is true, and accordingly they have wrongly sued Google Adwords to which RODGERS REIDY sought to collect around $44,000 in costs from Google. Idiot RODGERS REIDY had locked themselves into what they started by this bully boy Federal Court case with expensive lawyers, and then had to decide what to do to extract themselves.
 FEDERAL COURT REPORT 23 May 2017:  THE BANNED ADWORDS:  BANNED ADWORDS
THE INCREDIBLE FOLLY AND WASTE OF MONEY BY RODGERS REIDY WHO TRIED BULLY BOY TACTICS ON BEHALF OF DIRECTOR DAVID HAMBLETON TO INTIMIDATE GORDON.
Rodgers Reidy who tout their  Litigation Support Services, subsequently  ABANDONED the proceeding and the orders against  pleading.com.au were  set aside by  Justice Robert Bromwich. The abandonment is after  Rodgers Reidy incurred $3,745.00 for an  Urgent Application filing fee to the Federal Court, Barrister fees $8,868.75, Polczynski lawyers fees $25,503.50 and further costs of  $5,901.50 totalling  $44,018.75. These costs are ONLY for work against Google and do not include the work against Gordon  SEE Polczynski Lawyers SUBMISSIONS SUBMISSIONS TO COURT . and the affidavit of Clair Latham detailing Rodgers Reidy legal costs.

HAVING BEEN SERIOUSLY BURNTRodgers Reidy have escaped having to pay Google's Costs which Google was seeking plus Indemnity Costs which are ordinarily awarded only in circumstances involving misconduct, for example, to penalize a party where they have maintained a cause of action with no real prospect of success. 
Rodgers Reidy now say that the reason for abandonment was "commercial". Yeah right... originally it was more like a SLAPP SUIT to intimidate the publisher of the  pleading.com.au website (a litigant in person) and now they have egg all over their collective faces, after having to cut & run.
This domain  RodgersReidy.Sucks has been registered in commemoration of the  Rodgers Reidy monumental cock up at huge cost to them, which could have been put towards the damages claimed against their wayward  DIRECTOR DAVID HAMBLETON being sued and removal of the offending website, but instead has resulted in the addition of this .Sucks website.
NO NO NO, by having their collective heads firmly stuck up their own backsides, these numbnut accountants, not concerned with the truth of matters, would rather push their weight around and litigate thus escalating the situation by blundering into further litigation without due diligence, in particular failing to contact Gordon before the blunder. One wonders if they apply the same belligerent and stupid decisions when they manage the financial & litigation affairs of their clients.
 FEDERAL COURT REPORT 9 August 2017:  The decision on costs by  Justice Bromwich has been delivered  COSTS DECISION. The Federal Court publication is HERE.
No costs were awarded against Rogers Reidy or Google. From the 15 page decision Google did not get the $22,449.97 it sought. Essentially it seems because of its own cock up by Google lawyers.
The judge appears to not have taken account Gordon's wish to continue the litigation and seek 50 declarations by counterclaim, which caused Rodgers Reidy to cut & run.
Here are Gordon's submissions to the Court showing how slack (perhaps on purpose) the lawyers were in notifying him of the Urgent Application.
As a litigant in person, Gordon can't claim costs except for out of pocket expenses. Yeah a really fair legal system we have in Australia, and the only people to get paid are the lawyers.
