Federal Court dismisses bid to stop Rally Australia
- 27th August 2009, 5:55pm
The Federal Court in Sydney today dismissed a last-minute attempt to stop next week's Repco Rally Australia.
The court held an urgent hearing to hear an application for an injunction by Ms Katie Milne, a Tweed Shire Councillor. After Ms Milne's representative had presented her case, Justice Stone dismissed the application because Ms Milne's case was without merit.
Garry Connelly, the Chairman of Rally Australia's organising committee, said he was not surprised by the result.
"We have always complied with all laws and have spent a lot of time and effort to achieve the highest environmental standards," Mr Connelly said.
He said that Rally Australia would now continue working to bring a world class event to the Northern Rivers on 3-6 September.
