Otago Rugby Football Union board members Wayne Graham and
Laurie Mains are together seeking more than $1 million in
damages from Dunedin Mayor Dave Cull over allegations of
defamation, court documents show.
Healthy profits from the Otago Rugby Football Union's
black-tie fundraising dinner went "into the pot" to pay the
union's day-to-day business costs, rather than to creditors
left out of pocket, it has been confirmed.
An unpaid bill for $25,000 worth of food and drink, accrued
at an Otago Rugby Football Union black-tie dinner just months
before the union admitted facing liquidation, has been
labelled "scandalous" and "obscene".
