Gummow's not scared of nothing

Port of Portland Pty Ltd v State of Victoria [2010] HCATrans 108

MS KENNY SC: So if the appeal proceeds, your Honours are going to be taken to some fairly obscure pieces of legislation which have not yet been ruled upon by the Court of Appeal.

GUMMOW J: That does not intimidate us.

nothing like saving some time

Miller & Associates Insurance Broking Pty Ltd v BMW Australia Finance Limited [2010] HCATrans 94

MR GLEESON SC: With respect, his Honour Associate Justice of Appeal Robson mishandles the evidence on this point.

CRENNAN J: He is an Acting Judge of Appeal.

MR GLEESON: I am sorry. Did I say “Associate”?

CRENNAN J: Yes; just a slip of the tongue, I think, Mr Gleeson.

MR GLEESON: Yes; I apologise.

HEYDON J: These questions of etiquette are very interesting. Is it not correct simply to call him Justice Robson?

MR GLEESON: That is a lot easier; thank you, your Honour.

HEYDON J: And the others are Justice Ashley and so on.

MR GLEESON: That will shorten my submissions significantly.

FRENCH CJ: That is to be encouraged
