Brittany Higgins has posted on social media for the first time since the court found Bruce Lehrmann had raped her.

Federal Court Justice Michael Lee ruled, to the civil standard, that Mr Lehrmann had lied and had sex with Ms Higgins on the couch of Senator Linda Reynolds’ office in 2021 — and that she was too drunk to consent at the time.

The ruling on the balance of probabilities meant Mr Lehrmann lost his defamation suit against Channel 10.
