Christian Porter lands high-profile first case since quitting parliament to practice law  

Former attorney-general Christian Porter has chosen a high-profile trial for his return to law after quitting politics from the May 21 election.

Mr Porter’s political career nosedived after allegations that he raped a 16-year-old girl in 1988 when he was 17, which he denies, emerged last year

The outgoing Liberal MP for Pearce in WA was dumped from the front bench after suing the ABC for defamation for revealing the sexual assault claims.

He announced he would not seek re-election in 2022 after it was revealed he accepted donations to his civil case from anonymous sources.

Porter (pictured with former partner Jennifer) plans to return to the legal sector with his own practice and may possibly do some 'future writing ventures'.
