Courts hold the line against name suppression!

By Steven | July 7, 2011

The Supreme Court has just denied leave to appeal in a name suppression case. David Ingram Rowley and Barrie James Skinner have been charged with dishonest use of a document and perverting the course of justice. The trial is set for February next year. They were granted name suppression in the District Court. This was overturned in the High Court. The Court of Appeal agreed. The Supreme Court agreed. The Supreme Court even refused to allow them to make a new application on fresh grounds. Whale Oil, where are you?
