Commonwealth 4 September 2013 -

Viktoria Pecenka v Minister for Health [2013] HCASL 145 Children's hospital employee - claim suffered two psychiatric injuries in course of employment - breach of duty of care - application for extension of time to make special leave application dismissed.

New South Wales (NSW) -

5 September 2013 - Application of Michael Bar-Mordecai [2013] NSWSC 1265 -

On 6 September 2000, the medical Tribunal of NSW de-registered Mr Bar-Mordecai as a medical practitioner and prohibited him from making an application for review of that order for seven years. Subsequently, there have been at least 10 attempts to have those orders set aside, rendering Mr Bar-Mordecai a vexatious litigant. He must therefore be granted leave by the Court pursuant to the Vexatious Proceedings Act 2008 (NSW) (the Act) to institute any proceedings.
