Qld Information Commissioner in FOI mess

Brisbane's Courier Mail on 23 February in an article headed "Lawyer launches bid to jail FOI head" reported on a court battle raging between Queensland's Information Commissioner and "a rogue lawyer" who describes himself as an "FOI warrior".

The lawyer has taken legal action over the way in which the Information Commission handled a complaint regarding an FOI application for documents from the Crime and Misconduct Commission.

According to the report he served court documents on the Commissioner at her home address; she complained to the police that she was being stalked; the lawyer has now taken court action against her for contempt of court and sought access to documents concerning her complaint to the police; and she objects to disclosure.
