On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Avi Yemini joined Ezra to talk about how he successfully secured an expedited hearing in his fight to attend parliamentary press conferences in Victoria.

Registrar Martin Keith agreed that it was important that the matter be heard quickly and ordered documents to be filed by both parties before February.

A directions hearing has now been scheduled for March 9 in the Victorian Supreme Court.

Defendants, represented by Glen Ayres, had led an oppositional push for a drawn-out September hearing, with the state looking to drag its heels to prevent Yemini attending press conferences, impacting his ability to report effectively ahead of the upcoming election.

All journalists should be allowed to report at public press conferences, so we are fighting back! Follow along at for updates on Avi's legal proceedings.

This is just an excerpt from the full Ezra Levant Show.
