NEWSLETTER: NSW Public Sector – Issue 90

15 June 2020


Welcome to Issue 90 of the NSW Public Sector Newsletter. In this fortnight’s newsletter, the restrictions on public gatherings made in light of the COVID-19 pandemic received legal attention when organisers sought a declaration from the New South Wales Supreme Court that the Commissioner had not opposed a planned public assembly. Late on Friday, 5 June 2020, his Honour Justice Fagan declined to make such a declaration. However, this decision was overturned on Saturday, 9 June by the Supreme Court of NSW, Court of Appeal, who determined that the primary judge erred in his decision that the organiser had not provided notice under s23 (1) of the Summary Offences Act 1988 (NSW).
