The Media’s Standing to Challenge Departures from Open Justice
MetadataShow full item record
Open justice is essential to the integrity of our justice system. When a court departs from open justice, it is appropriate that media organisations are able to question whether the circumstances warrant the departure. This article addresses the standing of media organisations to challenge departures from open justice. In some jurisdictions, the issue is resolved by statute. However, the position is not uniform around Australia. The article explains the position under the differing statutes and at common law. It focuses on the common law position, where the standing of media organisations is controversial. It argues that at common law, media organisations may intervene as of right, as a matter of natural justice, in any proceedings contemplating a departure from open justice.
