Brittany Higgins: court hears how a dream job turned into the nightmare of alleged rape

In her final memory before blacking out, Brittany Higgins paused for a moment of reflection, she told those closest to her.

Her mother, Kelly Higgins, told court this week that her daughter remembered being struck by two feelings: happiness and pride.

Lehrmann has pleaded not guilty to sexual intercourse without consent.

Kelly Higgins said her daughter became unfamiliar to her.

Lehrmann, dressed in a navy suit and tan boots, has for the most part busied himself taking notes in a small black diary as his trial plays out.

He watched this week as multiple witnesses contradicted his evidence on the reason for going back to Parliament House in the early hours of the morning.

He told police he went back to the office to pick up his keys and do some work on question time briefs for the minister. Higgins, he said, had also needed to do some work, though he had no idea what.
