In the long-running legal saga of former Department of Immigration and Citizenship public servant Michaela Banerji (@Lalegale on Twitter), who was terminated for 'misconduct' over tweets critical of the government, the relevant Minister, and her Department's policies, the Administrative Appeals Tribunal of Australia held that she is entitled to workers compensation from Comcare for an adjustment disorder, characterised by depression and anxiety, caused by the termination of her employment in circumstances where her termination trespassed on her implied freedom of political communication.

The AATA went on to describe the Commonwealth's efforts to restrict anonymous comments from public servants as bearing 'a discomforting resemblance to George Orwell’s thoughtcrime.'

A potentially landmark judgment is brewing in the High Court of Australia for the internet age with the hearing of Trkulja v Google Inc. today, the question being whether Google search results and autocomplete suggestions are capable of defaming a person?!

Innovation?

Not at my law firm, complain corporate clients, writes the Financial Review ...

Is there a disconnect between what some law firms do to be innovative, and what clients consider 'innovation'?

Or is there a communication/demonstration gap at some firms when it comes to bringing and promoting their initiatives to clients?
