I have evidence of an ACT government public servant acting on orders to commit an act which has caused me great detriment.The public servant was ” impliedly authorized to commit the act which caused me harm/loss.”*
Given the advice given by Robinson* that” malfeasance in public office is a personal tort, it is personal to the officer who commits the tort and liability will ordinarily be only personal liability”, is there anyone out there who has succeeded in such an action or who can advise me further?
The event occurred between March -April 2006. The public servant had left that Department soon afterwards, transferring to another Department.
