A subpoena issued to Byron Shire Echo editor Hans Lovejoy has been withdrawn by the council’s lawyers.

It comes after Shai Major, the defendant of Council’s case against an alleged illegal backpackers, signed a statement saying that an article in Echonetdaily quoting Mr Major was accurate and quoted correctly.

Council sought to add to their case against Mr Major by accessing the email exchange behind the story written by Mr Lovejoy, published on December 13, 2011.

Mr Lovejoy objected to the court on principle.
