In this judicial review application, the applicant sought review of a decision under the Extradition Act 1988 (Cth). The applicant named the “Brisbane Magistrates Court” as the Second Respondent. The Attorney-General of Queensland intervened in the proceeding to assist the Court on whether the Brisbane Magistrates Court should be removed as a party. The Federal Court (Colvin J) held that there was no Court recognised or established by the relevant statutory provisions that is described as the Brisbane Magistrates Court. The Second Respondent was removed as a party.
Sarah Spottiswood appeared for the Attorney-General of Queensland intervening, instructed by Crown Law.
