Linda Reynolds: Australian minister settles case after calling aide 'lying cow'

Australia's Defence Minister Linda Reynolds has paid compensation to a former aide who she called a "lying cow" after she alleged she had been raped by a former colleague. The confidential settlement also includes a donation to a sexual assault charity. She apologised to Brittany Higgins for making the slur at her in her office in February. Ms Higgins had publicly accused another staff member of raping her in 2019.
