Jury unable to reach verdict in Bruce Lehrmann trial

The jury says they have been unable to reach a decision in the trial for the man accused of raping Brittany Higgins

ACT Supreme Court Chief Justice Lucy McCallum has told jurors to re-examine points in disagreement and try and reach an unanimous verdict in the Bruce Lehrmann trial.

Lehrmann is accused of raping then-Liberal staffer Brittany Higgins inside Parliament House in March 2019.

He has pleaded not guilty to sexual intercourse without consent.

Jurors have been deliberating for five days.

Chief Justice McCallum said juries can “often reach a verdict if given more time”.

The court heard Chief Justice McCallum declare she has the power to discharge the jury, only if she is satisfied one or more of the jurors are not likely to agree.

“That means there is no likelihood of genuine agreement after any further deliberations,” she explained.

The jury were reminded to stay true to their oath and to consider the evidence in a fair manner.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster

Published

Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

U.S. home prices surge 47%

American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.

Tom Hutchens, the Executive Vice President of Production at Angel Oak Mortgage Solutions joins Veronica Dudo to discuss.
