Former Conservative Party leader Colin Craig is appealing a third court decision which found he sexually harassed his then press secretary.
Last year, the High Court found that Rachel MacGregor defamed Craig by suggesting he was a bad employer.

sexually harassing her.]
Colin Craig's lawyers are in the Court of Appeal today appealing that decision.
A lawyer, Stephen Mills QC, said Craig continues to argue his behaviour did not amount to sexual harassment.
"What he said was 'I have never sexually harassed Ms MacGregor'," he said.
It is the latest chapter in a series of ongoing legal actions over the fallout from the 2014 general election.
MacGregor's lawyers would present her case this afternoon.
