About a week ago, I posted about Mr Milan Tomasevic and how Justice Bell thought the judge below had not been solicitous enough to him. A reader of this blog has filled me in on Mr Tomasevic’s form. One of his early cases, Zegarac v Tomasevic  VSC 150, was a Part IX adjustment of property rights claim by his former defacto spouse Slavica Zegarac, and is a good example of the challenges presented by two litigants in person. Subsequently, Slavica Zegarac has got a taste for the game by suing her solicitor: see Zegarac v PD  VSC 264, and then resisting the solicitor’s suit for her bankruptcy, all the way to the High Court: Zegarac v PD  HCATrans 526 where her special leave application was over in less than 2 minutes.
- Charter of Human Rights and the Victorian unrepresented litigant
- Woman bankrupted because of solicitor’s failure to attend court suffered no loss
- The Law Institute exercised jurisdiction it didn’t have on receiving a pecuniary loss dispute resolution request from a bankrupt
- Trustee has standing to apply to set aside costs agreement between bankrupt and solicitor
- Bankrupt may not initiate dispute resolution procedure in relation to rights accrued prior to bankruptcy
