Queensland Law Society rejects comments made in recent editorials in The Courier-Mail.

Queensland Law Society president Michael Fitzgerald says: “It is our members’ experience that Justices of the Supreme Court are carrying out their duties. 

“We support the Supreme Court Judges in continuing to discharge their duties with nothing less than their usual exemplary conduct.

“We reject recent Courier-Mail editorials – our judges are not recalcitrant, nor do they need to be urged to ‘get back to work’.

“The Supreme Court Judges have the full confidence of the profession.

“The public can have full confidence in the Supreme Court of Queensland.”
