Recently, the woman at the center of former Australia skipper Tim Paine’s sexting scandal has suffered a massive legal blow.

Earlier, Renee Ferguson has claimed that she was sexually harassed by four employees of Cricket Tasmania.

Ferguson has further stated that the employees made sexual comments on her and two of them sent her explicit photos as well.

Additionally, Ferguson had asked for $1m as compensation for her sexual harassment by Cricket Tasmania in her workplace.

So far, the employees and staff at Cricket Tasmania have denied all wrongdoing.

The Federal Court and Australian Human Rights Commission have dismissed her claims.

Ferguson had 60 days to take the complaint to the Federal court.

Although she requested an extension time to file an application, Justice Mordy Bromberg on Thursday has refused her claim.

Justice Bromberg says that there is insufficient evidence that can testify that Ferguson was suffering from mental conditions.

It is now a nearly three-year delay from the side of Ferguson.

Says Justice Bromberg,

Ms Ferguson is left with little more to explain her failure to make her application for nearly three years than her subjective fear of retraumatisation.

Another case of Ferguson is still pending meanwhile.

For this case, she will be applying next year at Hobart Magistrates Court where she has been charged with theft of thousands of dollars and memberships while she was a receptionist there.

Ferguson has however, not pleaded guilty on more than 60 counts of stealing and two counts of dishonesty acquiring a financial advantage.
