Happy New Year all!
Just a very quick update to let you know that our application to the Federal Court was not filed when we expected it to be due to the engagement of a new senior counsel with a great deal of experience in that Court. This is good news for the case but it has meant that things have moved a bit slower than we might have liked due to the time needed (understandably!) for counsel to read the brief which is more than 800 pages long, get his head around it and be ready to advise the rest of our team about options, chances and ready the application.
Once this is all finalised, we expect to make an urgent application for a hearing and we will let you know for sure once that’s done.
Stage 1 of our 2-stage court process is drawing to a close. It’s only been a few weeks since we started but we have gathered together some of the best medical, legal, and activist minds in Australia and the world in this short space of time. Thank you to everyone who has helped with this appeal and if you haven’t yet given but would like to support our fight for freedom, now is a great time to do so!
