Blind, not stupid

By Steven | April 29, 2010

As Justice McGechan J put it in the Tucker case, justice should be blind, but it should not be stupid. Judges shouldn’t try to suppress information when the public know it already.

The Chief Justice said the same thing in the famous “American Billionaire” case:

Where information as to the identity of someone appearing before the Court is already in the public domain, it will not generally be appropriate to grant name suppression

So what’s going on here?

Two police officers charged after a drinking incident have had their names suppressed, despite being named in a Herald story for several months.
