This case was on appeal from the Magistrates Court and concerned a conviction of displaying obscene figures outside the East Melbourne Fertility Clinic. The judge found that when viewed objectively, the images displayed, in the context of a protest outside of a medical clinic, were obscene because they might properly be described as disgusting. Also, that the implied Constitutional right to freedom of political communication is not unlimited. A case summary can be found under the 'Resources' tab.
