David Leyonhjelm to pay Sarah Hanson-Young $120,000 after losing defamation appeal bid

Former senator David Leyonhjelm’s bid to overturn a $120,000 defamation bill owed to Sarah Hanson-Young has been dismissed by the full federal court. On Wednesday Justice Steven Rares announced he would have allowed the appeal against the finding he defamed the Greens senator, but was overruled by justices Michael Wigney and Wendy Abraham, who dismissed Leyonhjelm’s case with costs.
