Twenty-seven year old proceeding dismissed for want of prosecution

February 10th, 2010 · No Comments

Do things move slowly in Western Australia?  I wrote about an estate matter which went on and on and on here.  Now a twenty-seven year old proceeding, which came to have as one of its defendants a famous QC has been dismissed for want of prosecution and the decision confirmed on appeal: Smith v Bank of Western Australia [2010] WASCA 15.  The QC investigated Moira Rayner, and defended the QC disciplined for having taken to the media during the course of the Schapelle Corby saga.  Anyone know of a proceeding which has been on foot for longer?
