According to a report from Australia’s Daily Mail, Jonah Lehrman is considering suing the network and Lisa Wilkinson after he was accused of sexual assault during an interview on The Project in 2021.
The Daily Mail Australia also claimed that the network did not give Lehrmann a chance to comment before the story was published.
During the interview, his identity was not revealed. His name became public after he was charged with sexual misconduct.
He was only referred to as a male colleague during the interview.
According to a report by News.com.au, he has been unemployed since 2021. He reportedly has a legal bill of around $300,000.
All charges against him were dropped after his first trial was aborted due to a misconduct report by a member of the jury.
A second trial was also deemed detrimental to Higgins’ mental health.
