How far behind is NSW?
Back in August last year, the ACT Parliament passed legislation to protect public participation. This is Australia's first "anti-SLAPP" legislation.
The purpose of this Act is to protect public participation, and discourage certain civil proceedings that a reasonable person would consider interfere with engagement in public participation.
The ACT law was voted for by all parties.
Where is the NSW Legislation?
This type of intimidatory legal action certainly could happen in Newcastle.
What is the Hon. Jodi Leyanne MCKAY, MP doing about it?
Send her an email and ask her: What is the NSW Government's timetable to introduce anti-SLAPP legislation like the ACT?
