Follow-up Australian Article on Enforcing a Judgment on a Judgment


Further to the post in May this year regarding P St J Smart’s article which contended that an Australian court should not enforce a “judgment on a judgment”, Ian Molloy has written a follow-up article in the latest Australian Law Journal (2007 vol 81, p 760) highlighting two cases which adopt this view.  The cases are the Supreme Court of New South Wales decision in Taylor v McGiffen (unreported, Supreme Court of New South Wales, 15 July 1985) and the National Court of Justice of Papua New Guinea decision in WorkCover Authority (NSW) v Placer (PNG) Exploration Ltd [2006] PGNC 47.  Ian Molloy’s article is available on the internet to Lawbook Online subscribers.
