Sport campaigner claims win as AVO withdrawn

A conservative campaigner against trans players in female sport says she feels vindicated after an AVO taken against her by police on behalf of a Sydney transwoman soccer player was withdrawn in court.

Mum-of-three Kirralie Smith believes this is the first case in Australia where police apprehended violence orders were used in response to a social media post questioning a transgender woman playing in a female soccer competition.
Ms Smith, 52, was forced to hire top lawyers to defend her at Burwood Local Court — including former NSW Attorney-General Greg Smith, SC, to argue on free speech on constitutional grounds — and police withdrew the AVO in court at the last minute.
