Advocatus Diaboli Trevor Bell updates us on his court action
Our Advocatus Diaboli Trevor Bell has scored some good wins in the early days of his Supreme Court action.
Speaking on his Iron Fist & Velvet Glove podcast earlier this week, Trevor revealed that he had been successful in securing a section 49 costs order in his case against the Queensland government’s blocking of Satanists from being able to deliver religious instruction in public schools.
The costs order means that, no matter what happens in court, each side will bear their own costs.
“There are three things that you’ve got to demonstrate. One is that you have a case with some merit. And the Crown actually consented to all of this. We didn’t have to fight. They actually said to the judge, ‘We consent. Give him his order’” said Trevor.
“It has to be a test case that is of wider implication than just the case in question. And then you have to show financial disparity between yourself and the other side — so between myself and the state of Queensland.
“So I briefly listed my assets. And I can tell you that it was a brief list, because I don’t own much!”
He also reported that August looked likely for a hearing date.
We’re happy to see that Trev has just as much ‘vibe’ as the great Dennis Denuto when it comes to all things justice and the constitution…and you know what we mean!
