Magazine pays Wagner brothers $572,674 to settle claim

TOOWOOMBA'S Wagner family has settled their defamation case against London-based The Spectator Australia magazine and Sydney journalist Nick Cater.

Brothers John, Neill, Denis and Joe launched a suit after an article titled "Dam Busters! How Cater and Jones burst Grantham's wall of lies", ran on the front cover and on page 7 of its August 1, 2015 edition.

The Spectator has paid the Wagner brothers $572,674 to settle their claim.

Denis Wagner said on behalf of his family, "We are pleased with the successful resolution of the claim, which vindicates the stance we have taken in this matter.

"We are now focusing on vindicating our reputations in our cases against Alan Jones and Channel Nine."
