Lisa Wilkinson is on the stand in Federal Court this week.
She is the second respondent to the defamation suit brought by Bruce Lehrmann. He is suing Network Ten and Wilkinson based on the February 2021 interview on The Project in which Brittany Higgins alleged she was sexually assaulted inside Parliament House while she worked there.
Higgins alleges Lehrmann sexually assaulted her in the office of then Defence Industry Minister Linda Reynolds in the early hours of Saturday March 23, 2019. Lehrmann has always strenuously denied this.
A number of people have testified so far, including Higgins herself and The Project's producer. Now Wilkinson is in the witness box, in what is expected to be a two-day evidence session.
Here's everything we've learned so far.
Lisa Wilkinson's 2022 Logies speech was played out in court.
Lehrmann's barrister, Matthew Richardson SC, suggested that Wilkinson knew when she said the words she chose in her speech that people would know she believed Higgins' allegation.
Wilkinson replied: "I was celebrating her courage. I can't be in the minds of the audience... If you can be in the minds of the entire nation — that's a superpower I don't possess."
Wilkinson said she disagreed with the suggestion her speech was "reckless and ill advised".
"I did appropriate checks. I had sought advice before I got up on that stage. I take responsibility for those words, I spoke them."
Richardson said: "I want to suggest to you that you put your pride and your ego ahead of my client's right to a fair trial when you gave that speech."
Wilkinson replied: "I completely disagree."
