Court cases galore
Lisa Wilkinson, the Network 10 star who hasn’t been on the telly for 12 months, is in a legal tussle with her employer over who should foot the bill for her legal costs in the defamation case brought by former Liberal staffer Bruce Lehrmann. Wilkinson has taken her fight to the NSW Supreme Court, insisting the broadcaster should cough up for her $700,000 legal bill now rather than wait until the defamation case is over. But the network is pushing back, saying it was unnecessary for Wilkinson to hire her own lawyers and that they have yet to see the invoices. And you know what bookkeepers are like when you don’t give them your receipts… Lehrmann, a former colleague of Brittany Higgins, is suing Wilkinson and Network 10 over their February 2021 interview that aired on The Project. That defamation trial is set to start in Sydney tomorrow.
