Nicholas v. Commonwealth of Australia, S 183 of 2010 (pending)

Nicholas v. Commonwealth of Australia is pending before the High Court. The case concerns the validity of the Interim Measures Act Parliament passed in response to Lane v. Morrison, [2009] 239 CLR 230. For a sense of the issues in Nicholas, with an interesting Guantanamo military commission hypothetical, see the plaintiff's reply submissions.
