Good for him. That's real Justice and not metoo mud

Australian media is uniting and preparing for an appeal against him.
Because they are considering this decision as a 'setback' to the metoo movement.
I hope he maintains the frame, and if johnny depp also wins, that'll be gold.
Takeaways from the incident:
Excel in whatever you do,
Be calm, maintain your frame,
Count your losses from the accusation, present as well as future,
Your time, money, energy and reputation is precious. No need to take shit even from the nation's top news outlet.

that bitch is living the best time of her life. I hope she gets fucked in life after what she did to johnny depp and I am pretty sure it happened to other guys too.

Him and John Jarratt, another Australian actor falsely accused.
Accusers found to be lying should be name and shamed. There is little to no accountability for them.

Heard this one earlier in the week It was so ridiculous I couldn't believe I was hearing it being broadcasted over the entire fucking radio.
Here's a snippet from an article, Like who even buys this story.
The woman earlier told the court she was woken about 3am by Jarratt ripping off her bed covers and underwear before he pinned her down, covered her mouth with his hand and raped her. (Meanwhile the wife slept peacefully in another room)
The former housemate, who can’t be named for legal reasons, went to police in late 2017. She told the jury she didn’t report the alleged rape to authorities earlier because she feared she wouldn’t be believed.

Another funny thing is that she claimed it happened in 1976, and she reported it like 40 year later.

> inappropriately touched his co-star's breasts and back, followed her into a bathroom and sent her an inappropriate text message
It's a fucking movie set, you're surrounded by people and cameras. How come there's no evidence for any of that? And the text message should be the easiest to prove.

It was a play, i gather. Not a movie set.
[–]odaklanan_insan 77 points78 points79 points 5 months ago (4 children)
No evidence, no witnesses, no criminal background. Technically didn't happen, no matter where it was claimed to happen.
[–]quarthomon 98 points99 points100 points 5 months ago (1 child)
Are you saying "innocent until proven guilty"?
What are you, a fucking white male?
[–]hurtlingtooblivion 40 points41 points42 points 5 months ago (1 child)
Well, it may or may not have done. We'll never know. But the point is, hes innocent until proven guilty, and had his name and character dragged through the mud before then. He was right to sue and fair he won.
[–]the_truth_is_asshole 7 points8 points9 points 5 months ago (0 children)
it may or may not have done
it may or may not have done
... and why are we giving accusers with zero evidence any benefit of any doubt?
No evidence = it didn't happen. This arbitrary "maybe" is cognitive poison.
[–]Cods_gift_to_reddit 13 points14 points15 points 5 months ago (0 children)
Because the cameras are there to film scenes not to film what happens in bathrooms...
[–]if_i_could_trade 0 points1 point2 points 5 months ago (0 children)
You know the cameras are pointed at the set right
People aren't just constantly walking around with them on, wasting footage and making it harder to edit later

Don't jizz in your pants yet, everyone. He won a suit against a newspaper that wrote an article about what he's accused of doing. He didn't win against his accuser or anything actually related to poundmetoo.
[–]ThatsSoRaven4 30 points31 points32 points 5 months ago (1 child)
Yes, but the newspapers convict you in the court of public opinion wayyyy before a court of law has a chance to hear the case. He’s won against the court of public opinion (for now). This is a big win.
[–]olinvomibo123[S] 22 points23 points24 points 5 months ago* (1 child)
They published it, without any corroboration.
The accuser took months to give consent to testify against rush.
Telegraph's request to present another witness was denied on the ground of being 'substantially late' .
This is an excerpt of the relevant part from the wiki:
In his written statement defending his ruling, Justice Wigney said that none of Norvill's (original accuser) claims were proven substantially true and that Rush's evidence was overwhelming. He also criticised the Telegraph for "recklessly irresponsible pieces of [sensationalist] journalism of the very worst kind".
[–]LandoChronus 6 points7 points8 points 5 months ago (0 children)
I get all that. My point was that the money was from the newspaper. The suit, was against the newspaper.
The girl (accuser) never faced any punishment or had to deal with any negative media, at least from what this particular article says.
A lot of people in this thread are nearly cheering that Rush won a PoundMeToo case, but I wanted to clarify that he did not. He won a suit against the newspaper who wrote an article about his alleged conduct, while the actual PoundMeToo chick wasn't involved in this particular court case as either party.

Good birthday present for him, 68 today!

Another example of how to get the best possible result under the circumstances. Maintain frame, say nothing, lawyer up.
[–]andreas-mgtow 20 points21 points22 points 5 months ago (0 children)
He should also go after the "victim", Eryn Jean Norvill.
Women won't understand agency for false accussations without punishment.
No repercussions, no leasons learned.

Looks like Australia’s Justice System has done better at getting rid of their white knights in their justice system, the US should look to them as an example. However, Geoffrey does have a shit load of money to hire and attorney and go after these metoo and feminism wackos. Whereas the common guy is fucked if he gets an accusation like that could be the other explanation. That’s why the best Red Pill game/strategy should never be “beta bux” or “money game” because these woman will literally rape your wallet and if they can’t rape your wallet, they’ll say you raped sexually.

What an asshole. I remember everything that man did to me. It's indelible in the hippocampus.

Good for him. This needs to be SOP for any man that gets #metoo'd: Maintain frame, apologize for NOTHING, lawyer up, and sue them into oblivion.
