Lawyer’s name suppression bid fails

By Steven | February 13, 2012

Criminal lawyer Barry Hart’s long attempt to have his name suppressed for his disciplinary tribunal charges has failed at the final hurdle, having also failed pretty much all the hurdles before that. The Supreme Court said:

The likely particular impact of publicity on [the person applying for suppression] will always be relevant, but it is untenable to suggest that professional people of high public profile, such as the applicant, have anything approaching a presumptive entitlement to suppression.
