VACANCIES APLENTY FOR OUR MAGS
JUDGE Margaret McMurdo’s elevation to Acting Governor caught some legal eagles by surprise. The Court of Appeal tsarina (pictured) is known down the courts as “Lady Macbeth’’ for her critical role when Tim Carmody stood down as Chief Justice in July.
Not only has the A-Pal team dragged their feet appointing a new Chief Justice but also it appears there are Magistrate’s Court vacancies overdue if Cabinet can stop squabbling.
Mag’s court openings exist in Cairns, Gold Coast, Innisfail, Mackay and Maroochydore.
“Your Honour’’ indeed.
