The office of Julian Burnside QC has confirmed to Crikey this morning that he will be representing Mary Kostakidis in her fight against SBS.

Kostakidis walked out the SBS door on August 10 and hasn't been back since. The Australian is reporting this morning that Kostakidis will sue the network for breach of contract and the focus is falling on Stan Grant, the co-reader of the SBS World News Australia at 6.30pm.
