In Slattery v Manningham City Council, Senior Member Nihill found that a declaration prohibiting Mr Slattery from attending any building owned, occupied or managed by the Maningham City Council constituted direct discrimination in the provision of services on the grounds of disability in breach of section 44 of the Equal Opportunity Act 2010. It was also in breach of section 38 of the Charter. The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission intervened in the proceeding.
