Former Liberal Celebration staffer Bruce Lehrmann has accused the ABC of broadcasting Brittany Higgins’ Nationwide Press Membership handle to “prejudice” legal proceedings introduced towards him.

The allegation was made by Lehrmann via his attorneys in paperwork filed within the Federal Courtroom on Monday. In them, Lehrmann’s attorneys describe the choice to air Higgins’ handle stay on February 9 final yr as “recklessly detached, negligent and wilfully blind” to the likelihood that Higgins would repeat “defamatory” claims towards him forward of his Supreme Courtroom trial.

The ABC grew to become the third media organisation to face defamation motion from Lehrmann in early April for its resolution to air a joint Nationwide Press Membership handle from Higgins and Grace Tame, and to later add the handle to its YouTube channel.
