See the 'Resources' tab for two significant Charter decisions handed down late 2012 - Magee v Delaney and Aitken v Deparment of Education and Early Childhood Development.

Magee v Delaney considered the limits of the right to freedom of expression, finding that while painting over an advertisement in protest was capable of imparting information, damage to a third person's property was not protected under the Charter. Aitken found that Special Religious Instruction in state primary schools did not discriminate against the complainant's children in breach of the Equal Opportunity Act.
