ABC News: Woman waits an ‘agonising’ six years for sexual harassment case ruling after court ‘clerical error’

By | Media Coverage

A victim of workplace sexual harassment has still not been told why she had to wait over six years for the Federal Circuit Court to hand down a judgment.

Our client has been told an “administrative oversight” was to blame for the delay.

Principal, Susan Moriarty, has launched a Freedom of Information request to uncover documents related to the “oversight” – to find out what went wrong.

Ms Moriarty said the situation was intolerable in the 21st Century, saying “justice delayed is justice denied”.

“We had a person, a vulnerable young woman, waiting six years and one month for a decision that’s had to be remedied on appeal before the Full Court,” she said.

“There’s an explanation owed to her. She is owed some accountability by the justice system.”
