The ABC has reached a settlement with Bruce Lehrmann after he sued the national broadcaster and Channel ten for defamation.
Lehrmann had sued the ABC for airing a National Press Club address by Brittany Higgins and former Australian of the Year Grace Tame.
Justice Michael Lee told the Federal Court on Wednesday – the day the civil trial was due to begin – ‘a settlement has been agreed between the applicant and the ABC.’
Lehrmann’s case against Channel 10 is set to proceed today. Former Project host Lisa Wilkinson was present in the courtroom.
