Bruce Lerman’s defense team was quick to pick up on Brittany Higgins’ emotional outburst outside the courtreferring him to the Australian Federal Police and the ACT Supreme Court.

It is understood the team believes Ms Higgins’ tearful televised speech may have breached the Fair Trials Act. If so, she could be charged with a felony.

It comes after Chief Justice Lucy McCallum discharged the jury in the accused rapist’s trial on Thursday morning.

A short while later, Mr. Lerman left the courtroom in silence.

His attorney, Steve Wybrow, said he was disappointed with the outcome, but he was unable to comment further.

Ms Higgins then left the court, crying and shaking hands.

“I was interrogated for a long time.”
