The complainant indicated that they did not want their previous file closed, and asked that an inquiry be conducted into their complaint against the judge involved. The complainant was advised that the Council does not conduct an investigation into every matter brought to its attention, and that the early stages of a complaint review has been described by the Federal Court of Appeal as a screening procedure. In that context, only matters that appear to warrant further consideration are referred for more fulsome investigation. The Council determined that this case did not need any further explanation, and the Council would not re-open the complaint. The matter was closed.
