In a significant ruling by the Federal Court, it was determined that Bruce Lehrmann likely committed the act of rape against Brittany Higgins in Linda Reynolds’ office in 2019. Additionally, Lehrmann’s defamation case against Network Ten and Lisa Wilkinson was dismissed by the court. Interestingly, the trial shed light on Lehrmann’s unusual fixation on French submarine contracts, a focus that was deemed peculiar by the judges.

A crucial aspect of the trial was the lip reader’s analysis of footage, which showed Lehrmann encouraging Higgins to consume alcohol. This interpretation played a pivotal role in the case’s proceedings. The trial garnered substantial public interest with thousands of individuals closely monitoring the developments.
