Former High Court judge Dyson Heydon sexually harassed several associates, inquiry reveals – ABC News

In a statement, the High Court said it was advised of the allegations, by six associates, last year.

An inquiry was then conducted by independent consultant Dr Vivienne Thom over several months.

Five of the associates worked for Mr Heydon, while one worked for a different High Court judge.

Court Chief Justice Susan Kiefel said the findings were of “extreme
concern” to all of the current members of the High Court bench and the
court’s staff.

“We have made a sincere apology to the six women whose complaints were borne out.

“We know it would have been difficult to come forward. Their accounts of their experiences at the time have been believed.”
