The applicant was a director of the respondent company who was replaced at a meeting of members. The Court held that the notice of the meeting was insufficiently detailed, that the proxies which had been delivered did not comply with the requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). The court further held that, even if those matters were irregularities, the resolutions passed at the meeting would still be declared invalid as occasioning a substantive injustice to the director.
Sean Russell appeared for the first respondent, instructed by JML Rose.
Christopher Johnstone appeared for the second, fourth and sixth respondents, instructed by James Conomos Lawyers.
