Difference under the law 13/9/2012
Any individual who ignored Supreme Court orders would end up in extremely hot water, quite possibly in the slot. Likewise those in charge of a corporation or statutory body who thumbed their noses at the state’s highest bench. So what gives here?
VICTORIA has joined fresh contempt proceedings against the CFMEU after the union again ignored a scheduled court appearance.
Victorian Supreme Court judge Anthony Cavanough today granted the Attorney-General’s application to join Grocon’s contempt claim against the Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union.
The application was unopposed after the CFMEU again failed to send any legal representation to the court, despite being notified about the hearing.
“They have had their chance here today,” Justice Cavanough said.
“They haven’t taken it.”
Grocon and the Baillieu government seek to have the CFMEU punished for breaching last month’s court orders, which banned blockades at Grocon’s Myer Emporium and Footscray projects.
