Geez hasn’t the defamation case that’s playing out in Sydney put Bruce Lehrmann and Brittany Higgins under pressure… New questions were also raised after evidence was heard that the pair kissed in a nightclub on the night in question. And Higgins is facing questions over her $2.45 million settlement from the Commonwealth over alleged duty of care breaches after she accused Lehrmann of sexually assaulting her – something he denies. As for Lehrmann, his exclusive interview with Seven has been scratched from Australia’s top journalism awards – the Walkleys – after court proceedings revealed the network paid his rent for a year to secure the scoop. Channel 10’s Lisa Wilkinson is still to take the stand with the case expected to wrap up next Thursday.

There’s also an update on the claims published against former Sydney shock jock Alan Jones by the Sydney Morning Herald/Age… His lawyer says the allegations that Jones indecently assaulted several men are “demonstrably false” and that Jones has launched legal action against the Nine newspapers.
