With waiting times for Family court matters ballooning out to over 13 months in Dubbo, Orana Law Society president Andrew Boog has called for a Federal Circuit Court judge to be based at Dubbo, reports the Daily Liberal.
The Attorney General’s department, asked for comment, disputed that non-complex matters had waiting times that long, and while they were committed to reasonable waiting times, were hopeful that they could be achieved through increased efficiency.
The official response said: “The Attorney-General is carefully considering all available options for any administrative and structural reform to address long-term financial sustainability of the federal courts. ” The KPMG review of federal courts’ performance and funding, commissioned in early 2014, will help inform the government’s consideration.”Back to News
