By Justice Lee in his judgment on the Bruce Lehrmann defamation case against Channel 10 and journo Lisa Wilkinson. Lehrmann brought a costly and risky defamation case against Ten and Wilkinson after his criminal trial for rape of Brittany Higgins was aborted owing to juror misconduct. He did not face a second trial. Justice Lee found on the civil standard of proof. That is, on the balance of probabilities, that Lehrmann had raped Britttany Higgins and found for the defendants. He will likely be ordered to pay costs in the millions.


“Having escaped the lions’ den, Mr Lehrmann made the mistake of going back for his hat.”

Justice Lee
