I’ve been wondering lately. Was Kirby J ever a High court justice? By definition, a High Court Justice’s decisions are binding upon lower courts (ie Supreme Court and below). Name one case in which Kirby’s judgment was binding upon a lower court.

I can’t think of a single one since he stopped being Kirby P.

(Yes, I am bored of my contracts assignment).



  1. What about all those 7-0 judgments?

    1) Name one of sufficient note.

    2) The result is therefore the same as those in which the HCA only had 6 JJ. So I guess I’m not strictly correct, but he’s still quite dispensable.
