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  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?
