One of Australia's most decorated soldiers, Ben Roberts-Smith, is suing Channel Nine over allegations of murders committed during his service in Afghanistan, and allegations of bullying and domestic violence. Ben Roberts-Smith strenuously denies the allegations. The defamation trial is already in its second week, and with a possible eight more weeks to go it's being billed as one of the biggest in Australian legal history. So what's come out in court so far? And what does it all mean for Channel Nine, for Ben Roberts-Smith, and for the Australian Defence Force?
