Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young wins defamation case against David Leyonhjelm

Former senator David Leyonhjelm is ordered to pay Greens senator Sarah Hanson-Young $120,000 over defamatory comments he made.

Senator Hanson-Young said she was “pleased with the court’s decision”.

“When men do the wrong thing, they should apologise. Most men do. But when they don’t they should be called out,” she said.

“It’s for every woman and girl who’s been told or made to stay silent in the face of harassment and disrespect that I took legal action.
