The ABC brings word of an extraordinary outburst by visiting Judge Shane Marshall who wants to get the hell out of town and have no more to do with the ACT legal system (it ain’t no justice system IMHO):
“The entire saga of the Eastman jurisdictional issue has been attended with a bizarre attitude by the DPP,” he said.
“The DPP now seeks to further muddy the waters in an inappropriate way.”
He then took aim at the ACT Government saying the only way to secure the inquiry would be for the Government to have the intestinal fortitude to order an inquiry itself.
Justice Marshall told the court he plans not to work in the ACT again.
“This whole sorry saga is the reason why I will not be making myself available to sit again on this court in any capacity once my reserved judgments in three recent Court of Appeal matters have been published,” he said.
