Seven fought the law -- and Seven won. The Seven Network has been vindicated in its battle against the Australian Federal Police over those raids in February in connection with the claimed exclusive interview deal with Schapelle Corby. This morning the network won legal proceedings against the AFP -- and the police aren't off the hook yet.
In the Federal Court in Sydney this morning, Seven was successful in having the search warrants used for the raids quashed. The network is also looking for its costs to be paid and says it is "considering other options available" to "redress the costs of the AFP's failed investigation". It's understood Seven could sue the AFP for trespass -- lawyers are believed to be studying a 2009 decision of the NSW Court of Appeal which forced the Nine Network to pay damages for trespass.
