Acted in relation to various proceedings concerning the clearing of some 20,000 hectares of vegetation at Strathmore Station in far north Queensland.  This included defending two judicial review proceedings relating to decisions on PMAVs, an appeal to the P&E Court against an enforcement notice, and peripheral assistance to a prosecution run in-house by the State (including disclosure of 27,500 documents in a 7 day timeframe).  DNRME was successful in the prosecution, the judicial review proceedings were both withdrawn, and the enforcement notice appeal was resolved on the basis of extensive rehabilitation requirements.
