The Law Society of Tasmania today spoke in support of the process used in the appointment of Justice Greg Geason.

Law Society President Will Justo said:

“Chris Gunson SC was closely involved in the appointment process and has made it clear that it was conducted with integrity. In particular it is now apparent that Ms O’Connor’s assertion that the selection panel recommended a particular applicant for appointment is wrong.

Ms O’Connor’s questions in parliament undermine the appointment process, which in turn undermines a worthy appointee. She should correct the record.
