If Not Newsworthy…

Then at least worth a link. The second paragraph of judgement in Visy Paper Pty. Ltd. -v- ACCC [2005] FCAFC 236, decided 17 Nov, reads:

‘Regrettably, the third member of the Full Court, Hill J, died following the hearing of the appeal. The parties have consented to the remaining members of the Full Court determining the appeal pursuant to s 14(3) of the Federal Court of Australia Act 1976 (Cth).’

Necessary, indeed, but possibly subtelty is not the strong point of Stone and Allsop JJs. ‘Yeah, remember that other guy up hear when you were arguing? Yeah, he’s dead. Anyways, people, the show must go on!’

Sorry, I thought it was funny.
