Simon represents JG Russell
Simon is representing JG Russell in his application for judicial review of the refusal of the Commissioner of Inland Revenue to accept instalment payments towards a $400 million debt. On 26 August 2014, the High Court granted interim orders prohibiting the Commissioner of Inland Revenue from pursuing bankruptcy proceedings until the determination of Mr Russell’s application for judicial review. The Commissioner has appealed interim orders and the appeal will be heard in the Court of Appeal on 12 May 2015.
On 12 February 2015, Simon represented Mr Russell in opposing the Commissioner’s application to the High Court to strike out Mr Russell’s application for judicial review. Asher J has reserved his decision.
