Conman loses case, costs
CONVICTED Casino conman Paul McMahon had another setback last week when his attempt to extract money from his former wife was thrown out of court.
A Sydney magistrate last week ruled that McMahon’s former wife Eva did not have a case to answer and awarded her costs.
“It’s good to finally have him out of my life so I can move on,” said Eva, who asked that her maiden name not be published.
As revealed in The Northern Star last month, McMahon had used a front company, Radiancy Pty Ltd, to sue Eva for about $95,000 claiming it was money McMahon lent her.
Eva has always maintained it was repayment of money she had lent to her then husband from the sale of a unit her father had left her.
After The Northern Star reported on the case, lawyers for McMahon and Radiancy offered to settle the case on the condition that Eva paid costs and agreed she was not owed any child maintenance.
After Eva, a teacher, was initially forced to defend herself against Radiancy’s army of high-priced barristers, the NSW Law Society took on her case pro bono.
