As juicy as a $361 steak

New details about the evidence Network Ten lawyers will present in the Federal Court have been released after they were given the green light to reopen their defence against former political staffer Bruce Lehrmann’s defamation suit. To recap, Ten’s new witness is former Seven producer Taylor Auerbach – he worked on Lehrmann’s interview with Spotlight last year. His 3 affidavits allege Lehrmann received more perks on Seven’s dime than his rent… Auerbach claims Lehrmann had Thai ‘massages’ worth around $10,000, a $400 round of golf, and about $13,000 worth of accommodation, drugs and meals – including a $361 tomahawk steak. Ten’s lawyers will argue the evidence damages Lehrmann’s credibility – but Seven has called the claims “false and misleading”… And over in WA, the defamation matter between Senator Linda Reynolds and Brittany Higgins and her partner David Sharaz will head to court after mediation broke down yesterday.
