New Acland’s security application dismissed, OCAA appeal to live on

The High Court has today dismissed New Acland Coal’s application for security for costs from the Oakey Coal Action Alliance. 

OCAA Secretary Paul King said OCAA's High Court challenge in relation to the New Acland coal mine expansion would proceed.

“New Acland Coal have failed again to cripple the Oakey Coal Action Alliance,” he said.

“NAC's application for security of costs of $90,000 was today refused by Justice Bell of the High Court of Australia because it would not be in the interests of justice.

"This is New Acland Coal's third loss in a row. We are gaining momentum, they are losing it. 

“The end of this saga for the ill fated and controversial project is one big step closer."

Costs were awarded to OCAA.

The full High Court hearing is expected on October 6.
