ACT Supreme Court has selected a new jury ahead of the Bruce Lehrmann-Birttany Higgins trial, after the latest was ruled a mistrial due to ‘juror misconduct.’
Samantha Maiden, Peter Fitzsimons, Lisa Wilkinson have been selected as jurors along with Adam Bandt and Grace Tame, to provide an impartial and fair trial.
“This will ensure that we meet the correct outcome. Initially we were going to let the ALP hand pick the jurors but instead we thought it would be best for Brittany herself to provide advice and we did,” a spokesman for the Supreme Court said.
The new trial will begin in February 2023, to allow Higgins and Fitzsimons to complete the last chapters of the book already being written by Fitzsimons and to allow Brittany to lose a bit of weight.
