ClubsNSW drops lawsuit against Troy Stolz
“Who on earth sues a dying man?” Packer asked.
Stolz is running for NSW Parliament as an independent candidate against opposition leader Chris Minns in the Kogarah seat on a gambling reform platform.
He said there was no gag in the settlement that would prevent him from talking about gambling reform or cashless gaming and that he would remain committed to harm reduction.
“When I started [litigation] Three years ago it was very under the radar and now not only has it been made public but it’s become a campaign issue so I think I’ve really done everything I can do. It is now up to the public and politicians to fix the problem.”
He said he would withdraw his candidacy for Kogarah if Minns backed cashless gaming or offered bipartisan support to Perrottet’s reforms.
ClubsNSW said he was “pleased that an amicable settlement has been reached on matters involving Troy Stolz. Due to the confidential nature of the settlement, no further details will be disclosed.”
Stolz worked as a compliance manager for ClubsNSW until 2019 when he stopped working for anti-money laundering firm Initialism. He alleged in his lawsuit against ClubsNSW that the organization then launched a defamation campaign against him and failed to pay him his claims, claiming he was an independent contractor.
After being fired by his new boss, he provided Independent Federal Rep. Andrew Wilkie with a document that pointed to widespread industry non-compliance with money laundering laws. ClubsNSW sued him for breach of confidentiality.
Proudly told that herald Last year, after he was diagnosed with stage four cancer, his former employer appeared to be trying to wear him down with legal battles, including launching a new prosecution against him for criminal contempt – a claim ClubsNSW described as “blatant self-interest and lies “.
A statement said: “Mr Stolz is trying to present himself as a saint. The truth is he took baseless legal action against ClubsNSW and then took every opportunity the gullible media would offer to claim millions of dollars in severance payments from ClubsNSW.”
The files of the Federal Court of Justice show that Stolz submitted his declaration of termination on Tuesday.
