Court orders Rinehart to pay further case costs

A court in Sydney has ordered billionaire Gina Rinehart to pay the final portion of the costs involved in her failed case aimed at keeping secret the details of a feud over a family trust.

The mining magnate went to great lengths to try to stop the media reporting details of a court case launched against her in 2011 by three of her four children.

They want her removed as head of a family trust because they allege she engaged in misconduct by changing the date they could access their money.

She has already been ordered to pay media outlets, including the ABC, some of the costs involved in the case.

The New South Wales Supreme Court has ruled she must also pay a remaining portion.

It is thought the total costs she has to pay the media outlets is over $200,000 dollars.
