Sydney man wins $35,000 defamation payout over Facebook stoush

A man has been awarded $35,000 in damages after a judge found he was defamed by a single post in a Sydney community Facebook group.

Local man Bruce Goldberg successfully argued the post in the Rose Bay group, by Alice Voigt in November 2018, conveyed imputations including that he was a danger to women and a stalker.

The online spat began when Mr Goldberg started a rival community Facebook group in 2017, after being banned from the “official” Rose Bay page.

The suburb is among Sydney’s most affluent, where the median house price is more than $3.8 million.
