Australian Court Holds Hearing of Geoffrey Rush Defamation Case

SYDNEY – An Australian court was told on Friday that Australian actor Geoffrey Rush may never work again due to media reports of alleged sexual misconduct made against him by a young actress.

The verdict in the defamation suit will be handed down in 2019, the judge said on Friday.

Rush sued Nationwide News, owner of the Daily Telegraph and subsidiary of News Corp Australia, along with journalist Jonathan Moran, for an article accusing him of inappropriate conduct with an actress, published on Nov. 30, 2017.

The actor’s attorney, Bruce McClintock, said at the Federal Court in Sydney that Rush, who won an Oscar for “Shine,” could be unable to find work again due to the accusations, which he denies, and is seeking substantial compensation in damages due to lost earnings, ABC reported.

The alleged victim, Australian actress Eryn-Jean Norvill, who starred with Rush in the play “King Lear” at the Sydney Theater Company between November 2015 and January 2016, said that Rush had made inappropriate sexual gestures during a rehearsal.
