Willmott special leave to appeal application filed

  • Author : Samuel Hopper - 04-10-2012

The Australian Financial Review today published an article reporting that an application for special leave to appeal the Court of Appeal's recent decision in the Willmott case was filed last week.

The Court of Appeal held that a liquidator of a land owning company can use the disclaimer power in the Corporations Act to disclaim leases granted by the company.

For more discussion on the decision, refer to earlier posts here and here.

For those following the debate, I have also been referred to an interesting analysis of the decision by Minter Ellison available here.

The Australian Financial Review article is available here.
