Bruce Lehrmann, Former Australian Liberal Party Staffer Accused of RAPE - Defamation Trial

Bruce Lehrmann v Lisa Wilkinson: What is The Defamation Case About? -


Journalist Lisa Wilkinson and Network Ten Are Being Sued in The Federal Court by Lehrmann About The Allegation Lehrmann RAPED Political Staffer Colleague Brittany Higgins -(Substantially True)


The Guardian Australia 5 DEC 2023








Journalist Lisa Wilkinson and Network Ten are being sued in the federal court by Bruce Lehrmann




What is The Basis of Lehrmanns’ Claim?

After the collapse of his criminal trial due to juror misconduct, Lehrmann filed defamation claims against Wilkinson and Network Ten, and News Corp and the Gold Walkley award-winning reporter Samantha Maiden, who were first to break the story of Higgins’s allegations.

He has also threatened to sue the ABC for defamation over its publication of a National Press Club address by Higgins and former Australian of the year Grace Tame, but is yet to file a claim in court.





Brittany Higgins
Lisa Wilkinson seeks to prove Brittany Higgins rape allegation as part of defamation defence


Wilkinson and Network Ten are being sued over Wilkinson’s interview with Higgins on The Project, which aired on 15 February 2021. They are also being sued over related broadcasts on Channel 10’s website and on YouTube.

Lehrmann alleges the broadcasts carried four defamatory imputations. Chief among them are the suggestions that he “raped Brittany Higgins in Defence Minister Linda Reynolds’ office in 2019” and that he “continued to rape Brittany Higgins after she woke up mid-rape and was crying and telling him to stop at least half a dozen times”.

He has denied the allegations and pleaded not guilty at his aborted trial in the ACT supreme court. Prosecutors did not seek a re-trial due to concerns about Higgins’s mental health.

The first problem for Lehrmann is one of time. Plaintiffs are usually required to bring defamation proceedings within one year of the relevant publication date.

That limitation period has long since passed.

Lehrmann first needed to convince the federal court to extend the limitation period.


Higgins, Lehrmann and The Defamation Trial;

It’s one of the most watched defamation cases, with both Brittany Higgins and Bruce Lehrmann taking the stand in the Federal Court.

Mr Lehrmann is suing Network Ten and journalist Lisa Wilkinson for defamation over an interview where Ms Higgins alleged she had been raped by a Liberal staffer at Parliament House in 2019.

He has denied the allegation and has never been found guilty of any wrongdoing.

Update re: Bruce Lehrmann, Accused of RAPE Settles ONE Defamation Claim-$295,000

Bruce Lehrmann Defamation Trial LIVE: Brittany Higgins Returns to Witness Stand to Face Cross-Examination

The Guardian Australia 5 DEC 2023







What Higgins Has Said So Far Today

Brittany Higgins returned to the witness box today for her fourth full day of testimony.

Just a reminder: Bruce Lehrmann is suing Network Ten and journalist Lisa Wilkinson in the federal court over an interview with Higgins on Ten’s The Project in which she alleged she was raped by a Liberal staffer in Parliament House. Network Ten and Wilkinson are defending the case and Higgins is a witness for the defence.



Lehrmann had pleaded not guilty to one charge of sexual intercourse without consent, denying that any sexual activity had occurred in the criminal trial which was aborted due to juror misconduct.

Here’s what Higgins said under cross-examination this morning in the defamation case:

Lehrmann’s silk Steve Whybrow put to Higgins that she was concerned about her job and not because she was was sexually assaulted by Lehrmann. Higgins responded that “two things can be true”. “I was sexually assaulted, but I was still concerned about my job and I was starting to disclose the severity of the situation,” she told the court;

Whybrow challenged Higgins over her account of the alleged rape in senator Linda Reynolds’ suite. He suggested to her that she took off her dress and then lay down on the couch as she was feeling sick. Higgins said she didn’t know how she got to the couch or “how or exactly where” her dress ended up;

Whybrow also suggested to Higgins that she was not really drunk as she entered Parliament House on the night of the alleged rape. “Are you kidding?” Higgins said through tears. “I hadn’t been raped yet but I was skipping in the middle of parliament with no shoes on so it indicates someone is pretty drunk, yes”;

Higgins agreed her Bumble date may have left early from The Dock hotel on the night of the alleged rape because she ignored him, rather than because he was “mercilessly bullied” by others as Higgins had previously said. “When I was there, he was made fun of. But yes, in hindsight, I was very rude to my date and he left because I was rude to my date,” she said in court;

Whybrow read out a message Higgins sent to a former colleague, Liberal staffer Lauren Gain, who was with her on the night of the alleged rape. “Bruce ended up taking me back to Parliament House. I passed out in the office and when I woke up he was sexually assaulting me,” Higgins wrote in the message;

Higgins said she deleted some conversations on her phone that “triggered her” but denied deliberately deleting messages before handing her phone to police. “Between having five phones in five years and not having the one iCloud account – I had a separate iCloud account for work – and data just got lost,” she said;

The judge also ruled Whybrow can cross examine Higgins on the proposition she made “false representations” about her health to prevent a retrial.
Higgins continued being cross-examined this afternoon.


35m ago13.58 AEDT

Whybrow: “I just want to put some propositions to you quickly before lunch about that first meeting with Fiona Brown.

“I suggest you said you didn’t remember accessing the office; that you’d been out and that you’d been drinking or you were drunk; or words to that effect.”

Higgins: “I definitely told her that I ended up back in the office but I didn’t know what time.”

Whybrow asked if Higgins remembers what she told Fiona Brown about the circumstances of her waking up in the minister’s suite.

Whybrow asked if she remembers telling Brown “when you woke up you were half naked”.

Whybrow: “Do you remember telling [Fiona Brown] that?”

Higgins: “I was never woken up by security guards per se. I remember them yelling into the office.”

Whybrow: “And it was at that point that she offered you or discussed with you the employee assistance program [EAP] about getting some counselling from what must have been a humiliating experience to wake up in the minister’s office, having passed out drinking?”

Higgins: “No, I was offered the EAP after I broke down because I had just disclosed I’d been raped.

Whybrow: “Well, I suggest you didn’t.”

Higgins: “That’s incorrect.”

37m ago21.56 EST

A warning for readers: this blog contains graphic details of allegations of sexual assault.

The court has taken an hour for a lunch break and will return at 2pm.

Before lunch, Bruce Lehrmann’s barrister Steve Whybrow cross-examined Brittany Higgins about when she disclosed to her friend Ben Dillaway that she had been sexually assaulted.

According to text messages read to the court, Higgins told Dillaway she was concerned about losing her job after she had a meeting with her chief of staff Fiona Brown. Brown met with both Lehrmann and Higgins after it was discovered they had entered Parliament House after hours.

Whybrow put it to Higgins that she was concerned about her job and not because she had been sexually assaulted by Lehrmann.

“Two things can be true,” Higgins said. “I was sexually assaulted, but I was still concerned about my job and I was starting to disclose the severity of the situation to Ben.

Whybrow: “You hadn’t said anything about being sexually assaulted to Fiona Brown, had you?”

Higgins: “I had. The first person I disclosed to was Fiona Brown. And then I started to disclose to people who I cared about, which was Ben, I would never have had the courage to do it otherwise.”

A warning for readers: this blog contains graphic details of allegations of sexual assault.

Brittany Higgins has listened to Bruce Lehrmann’s barrister’s proposition of what took place in Senator Linda Reynolds’ suite on the night of the alleged rape.

“I want to suggest that what happened is that you went into that office and you were feeling sick and lay down on the [minister’s] couch.”

Higgins: “I don’t know. After being on the [window] ledge the next thing I know was Bruce raping me on the couch. So I don’t know how I got to the couch.”

Whybrow: “ I suggest you took your dress off before you lay down on the couch.”

Higgins: I don’t know how or exactly where my dress ended up.

Whybrow played the court part of the audio from an interview Higgins gave to Samantha Maiden from news.com.au.

Whybrow: “According to what you told [Maiden] then you remember laying down on the minister’s couch?”

Higgins: “I was trying to get into the spot of when I was being raped. I was on the couch I was drunk and he was raping me.”

‘Are you kidding?’: Higgins disagrees with Whybrow’s suggestion that she was not drunk entering Parliament House

Higgins has agreed with Lehrmann’s silk Steve Whybrow that she had been anxious “from the moment you first spoke to [chief of staff] Fiona Brown to see the footage of you entering Parliament House”.

Higgins:

Yeah, I was. I was always concerned about what Bruce would say if he said it was consensual sex. I was always scared about consent and how it appeared.

Whybrow:

You knew that whatever footage was held by Parliament House didn’t include inside the suite?

Higgins:

I had no idea. I’ve never seen a camera in the minister’s suite but I didn’t know.

Higgins is incredulous at the suggestion that she was not really drunk as she entered Parliament House with Bruce Lehrmann as seen on the CCTV cameras.

“Are you kidding?’” Higgins said through tears after Whybrow suggested she was not drunk because she walked in a straight line and did not fall over.

She said:
I hadn’t been raped yet but I was skipping in the middle of parliament with no shoes on so it indicates someone is pretty drunk, yes.

News Corp Agreed to Pay Bruce Lehrmann $295,000 to Settle Defamation Claim, Court Documents Reveal

Payment revealed after ABC agreed to pay him $150,000 and remove Facebook video of Brittany Higgins and Grace Tame speech at National Press Club


The Guardian 6 DEC 2023







News Corp agreed to pay Bruce Lehrmann $295,000 to drop a defamation suit he brought over a news.com.au article in which Brittany Higgins alleged she had been raped by a Liberal staffer in Parliament House, according to documents filed in the federal court.


The News Corp financial settlement brings to $445,000 the total amount Lehrmann has received towards his legal costs after the ABC agreed to pay $150,000 in an out-of-court settlement last month.

The 2021 article by Samantha Maiden, headlined “Young Staffer Brittany Higgins says she was raped at Parliament House”, was the first time the allegations had been aired in the media but did not name Lehrmann.

The deed also specifies the ABC agrees not to reinstate the YouTube video of the same event.

Lehrmann was not named in the press club address, but he alleged he was readily identifiable.

The ABC deed was signed on 21 November, the day before the defamation trial started last month. In a statement on 22 November, the ABC described the settlement as mutual.

“The proceedings have settled on mutually acceptable, confidential terms, without admission of liability,” the statement said.

The $150,000 included $7,000 to be paid to solicitors acting for ABC broadcaster Laura Tingle, who hosted the event and is the NPC president, to cover the costs incurred by Lehrmann relating to Tingle’s compliance with a subpoena to produce documents in the case.

The remaining $143,000 was paid to Lehrmann’s solicitor’s trust account as a contribution towards his legal costs.






Bruce Lehrmann is Suing Network Ten and Lisa Wilkinson For Defamation

Lehrmann Proceedings Day 10 – as It Happened


Lehrmann is currently suing Network Ten and Lisa Wilkinson for defamation over an interview with Higgins broadcast on The Project and online which did not name him but alleged she had been raped by a Liberal staffer in 2019. Brittany Higgins had volunteered to be a defamation trial witness as she ‘would not let rapist become a millionaire’


What we heard in court today;

The defence called a number of witnesses this afternoon who Network Ten’s barrister, Matt Collins KC, said would support Brittany Higgins’ version of events.

Bruce Lehrmann is suing Network Ten and Lisa Wilkinson for defamation over an interview with Higgins broadcast on The Project and online which did not name him but alleged she had been raped by a Liberal staffer in 2019.

Lehrmann has denied raping Higgins and pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexual intercourse without consent. His criminal trial was abandoned due to juror misconduct and the second did not proceed due to prosecutors’ fears for Higgins’ mental health.

Here’s what we heard this afternoon:


Justice Michael Lee ruled that details of ABC and News Corp’s settlements with Lehrmann over his defamation claims will be released.




Austin Wenke arrives at the federal court in Sydney




Austin Wenke, a former media adviser to Peter Dutton, agreed with the suggestion of Lehrmann’s barrister, Steve Whybrow SC, that it was “an open secret” in Parliament House that Lehrmann was the subject of the media reports.

“So in my own mind I concluded, what I understood to be the inference from the story, which was an allegation against him … against Mr Lehrmann,” Wenke told the court.

The Liberal staffer Lauren Gain told the court that the day after she left Higgins and Lehrmann at 88mph bar in Canberra she sent a message to a colleague saying Higgins and Lehrmann “hooked up”.

Gain also said that Higgins and Lehrmann had been “touchy with one another” and had been “kissing” on the night Higgins claims she was raped.

In December prosecutors dropped charges against Lehrmann for the alleged rape of Higgins, saying a retrial would pose an “unacceptable risk” to her health.
