Interestingly the newsworthy trial was forced to hit pause during the peak of the pandemic, when Sydney was in the middle of a lockdown and the headline-making trial has yet to resume.

Basically, the trial had to pause because it was no longer COVID-19 safe for it to continue, particularly because witnesses were being called.

In case you aren’t up to date, Roberts-Smith is suing The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald and The Canberra Times, all media outlets are opting with a truth defence, two of which are owned by Nine.

Robert Smith is suing the publications because of articles written about him that questioned his conduct and hero status.
