David and Goliath Supreme Court trial starts Monday.
Updated: May 11, 2022
Our court action is of David and Goliath proportions with statewide outcomes. We are challenging the power of the Crown through taking government business enterprise Sustainable Timber Tasmania and the government regulatory agency the Forest Practices Authority (the defendants) to trial on their management of our publicly owned forests.
This week we have appeared every day in front of the judge with our full team of lawyers to sort out the complex and murky paperwork and procedures that both defendants use to log our forests. This means that our costs have continued to rise, which we have to find ourselves, while the costs of STT and FPA are paid for by the government - that is tax payers- also us.
We need you to help us get our case across the line, and we are putting it all on the line through our personal efforts to hold the government to account. Please support our Legal Fighting Fund to highlight the unlawful practices that drive the logging of Krushka’s, and all our native forests.

For the forests,
Louise, and the Blue Derby Wild team
