The Supreme Court has released the thinking of Justice Penfold in denying another challenge as part of the ongoing legal saga over the ludicrous tenure of David Eastman in a public housing flat while he serves his life sentence for the murder of Assistant Commissioner Colin Winchester of the Australian Federal Police.
At some point it is hoped David will collect his things.
When one is told to put one’s affairs in order before sentencing this is exactly what should have been taken care of.
Sadly the question of keeping the flat remains before the courts consuming legal resources.
Lawyers will tell you this represents “fairness” but we can’t help noticing it also represents lots of lawyers getting paid.
