VID770/2010 Pat Eatock v Andrew Bolt & HWT
Mon 28 March 2011
In the afternoon session personal evidence was given by Pat Eatock and Bindi Cole.
Mr Merkel QC for the group members read out a witness statement on behalf of each lady before they entered the witness box.
In my opinion, the witness statements were compelling personal narratives and I understand that they will be available as public documents through the Court Registry.
There was not much time devoted to cross-examination of the two witnesses by Mr Young QC for Bolt and HWT.
The case resumes tomorrow morning when it is planned that Larissa Behrendt will provide her personal evidence.
