Hi Vic Federal Court Registry,

Re: VID433/2010 Title: Mark Lane Jangala v Commonwealth of Australia & Anor

Two questions.

1. Has Justice North issued any Orders resulting from Directions and Interlocutory Hearing on 7 April 2014?

Please advise as none are shown on your website (as yet).

2. Court sitting in Tennant Creek (NT) and Queen’s Birthday holiday.

I understand that His Honour is proposing that the Court will commence taking evidence in Tennant Creek on Monday 9 June. I also understand that that day is the Queen’s Birthday public holiday in the NT. See

Does His Honour intend to conduct any public formal court process on that day (Monday 9 June) in Tennant Creek?
