Power more democracy wins

In a breakthrough for democratic accountability, the Federal Court has ruled in favour of a game-changing case related to the ‘sports rorts’ affair, brought by former Senator Rex Patrick and litigators Maurice Blackburn, and supported by Grata Fund. 

This win draws a line in the sand on creeping government secrecy. The Court ruled that minister’s offices will no longer be able to use ministerial reshuffles to deny Freedom of Information (FoI) requests - strengthening transparency, accountability, and shoring up our democracy as a whole. 

Strategic litigation has immense power to force change in areas where it’s otherwise very difficult or impossible. Today we did just that - forced the government to act to fix our FOI system.
