In December 2016 the Racing Integrity Commissioner published his findings following an investigation into allegations regarding the external dissemination of information about the Racing Victoria cobalt investigations by a board member of Racing Victoria, Mr David Moodie.
Those findings were adverse to Mr Moodie. Mr Moodie subsequently instigated defamation proceedings against the
Commissioner in the Supreme Court of Victoria, which he has now withdrawn.
The Commissioner accepts Mr Moodie’s contention that he did not intentionally mislead Racing Victoria when he made certain disclosures to it in 2016.
Mr Moodie and the Commissioner have agreed to say nothing further about this matter publicly.
