The report is published in two parts- some interesting case studies from page 19 onwards in Part 1 continued in Part 2 with a summary of some important Tribunal cases, and this comment about access to court documents(page 29):
"We opposed a proposal that all documents declared “open access” be made available to the media and to members of the public without those seeking access having to show sufficient cause. We expressed a view that there seems to be a trend towards allowing greater access to court documents, regardless of whether the interest of those seeking access is anything more than sheer curiosity."Media organisations are of the view that the trend is for more not less restrictions on access to court documents. And does the principle of open justice cut any ice with Privacy NSW when it comes to"sufficient cause"?
