AAP logoAAP 15/09/2016

Hoddle Street mass murderer Julian Knight has lost a legal fight for compensation over alleged assaults in the military.

Knight, who murdered seven people and injured 19 in a shooting rampage in Melbourne in 1987, challenged the Commonwealth over a decision that denied him payment over alleged assaults while he was a cadet at The Royal Military College, Duntroon in Canberra.

Federal Court Justice Mordy Bromberg dismissed Knight's application in Melbourne on Thursday and also ordered him to pay the Commonwealth's legal costs.
