NQ Legal In The News
Anthony Templeton, ‘Compact lacks legal standing‘ Townsville Bulletin, June 5, 2012 at 8.
In June 2012 the newly elected Mayor of Townsville, Jenny Hill, conceded that a compact she sought to impose upon all councillors was merely an agreement to act in good faith rather than a legally enforceable document. The compact was designed to make Mayor Hill’s election promises a reality by imposing the agreement upon councillors. Included in the document was a promise of a rates freeze and $103 water rebate. Read the full article above for further details as well as NQ Legal Principal Solicitor, Stuart Watson’s legal opinion on the enforceability and practical effect of the compact.

NQ Legal acted for TAIHS in an Administrative Law Review to reach a negotiated settlement with the Queensland government to revoke former director-general, Linda Aspelt’s decision to cease communities funding to TAIHS. The community group claimed that the investigation was both incorrect and unfair, and they came to NQ Legal to seek recourse. Funding has since been reinstated and the TAIHS recovered the $12,000 they incurred through legal costs. Due to the revocation of the decision which was claimed to have spawned from an unfair and biased investigation, TAIHS can continue to perform their important work within the North Queensland Community and implement reforms that lead to the new Townsville Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander Corporation for Health Services.
