The extortion trial of former reality TV show contestant Suzi Taylor has sensationally been forced to restart, with the jury dismissed following a barrister being rushed to hospital.
The extortion trial of former reality TV show contestant Suzi Taylor has been forced to restart, with the jury dismissed after a barrister being rushed to hospital.
The man defending Ms Taylor's co-accused Ali Ebrahimi, Barrister Peter Nolan, took a tumble on the road outside Brisbane court today, injuring his knee.
The bike lane Mr Nolan was in had to be closed for over 45 minutes before paramedics arrived – taking him to Saint Andrews Hospital in a stable condition.
Ms Taylor and Mr Ebrahimi are charged over accusations of holding a man against his will, extorting him, assaulting and attempting to defraud him.
The trial will resume when the lawyer is fit enough to attend court, potentially coming as soon as tomorrow.
When the trial does restart, it is expected to go for four days.
