Judicial Review of Government Decisions
Are you unhappy with an administrative decision made by a state government agency or local government authority?
If you are you may be able to apply to the Queensland Supreme Court for a judicial review.
It is possible to seek a review of any question of law involved in making the decision and for the reform of procedures used if contrary to common law.
You are able to seek a review of decisions:
- made by an officer or employee of a Queensland Government agency or local government authority or
- of an administrative nature required, proposed or made under pursuant to legislation.
- If your interests are (or will be) adversely affected by an administrative decision, you can:
- request a statement of reasons explaining a decision and
- apply to the Supreme Court for a review of a decision if you are not satisfied with the statement of reasons for that decision.
Normally, you would first request for a statement of reasons and then if you are still not satisfied, you can apply to the Supreme Court for a statutory order of review. The court’s review covers the decision or lack of a decision and the decision-making process.
Time limits apply however so if you are in this position call us now to investigate further.
