Sydney Morning Herald: Archives’ legal bill for Palace Papers case could top $2 million

Sydney Morning Herald: Archives’ legal bill for Palace Papers case could top $2 million. “The National Archives spent $1 million fighting to stop Australians seeing the Palace Papers and faces spending that amount again on the legal costs of the historian who battled to get the documents released.
