Next week in the High Court of Australia

Next week in the High Court sees three days of hearing in British American Tobacco Australasia Limited v Commonwealth, and the associated case of J T International SA v Commonwealththe challenge by Big Tobacco to the Tobacco Plain Packaging Act 2011.  Argument has been set down for three days commencing Tuesday, 17 April 2012.
Then, on Friday, the High Court will hear argument in Clodumar v Nauru Lands Committee, an unusual case in many ways as it involves the question of whether or not the High Court is entitled to receive “fresh evidence”, a question that arises in the context of the High Court of Australia sitting as the ultimate court of appeal in the judicial hierarchy of the Republic of Nauru in relation to certain matters.
