The defence document of Sydney tabloid "The Daily Telegraph" shows that actress Eryn Jean Norvill has accused Hollywood star Geoffrey Rush of touching her inappropriately during the Sydney Theatre Company’s performance of "King Lear" in early 2016. Rush has denied the allegations, and he launched defamation proceedings against the newspaper in late 2017. Federal Court lifted a suppression order on the defence document on 19 February, although it has reserved a decision on an application to strike out some elements of the document.
