Wool growers group awaits decision on levy case
Oct '10
A professional wool growers group is waiting for the result of their long pending case over wool levies which led to the resignation of the Supreme Court judge Bill Wilson.

Justice Wilson was one of the Court of Appeal judges who invalidated the High Court decision which favored a saxon sheep breed group. The group of professional wool growers has been asking for repayment from the previous Wool Board for its denial to assist the group to finance its marketing strategy.

The judicial probe and the decision to send the case to the Court of Appeal for a new hearing was due to the Saxmere group's ensuing application to the Supreme Court, which led the probable conflict of interest over Justice Wilson's business association with the lawyer of the Wool Board to emerge, towards the end of June. The Court of Appeal has yet to give its decision over the issue.

The case has been lodged to recover the wool levy money which had been used by the previous Wool Board to finance competitors in the merino sector. Once the conflict is resolved legally, the sheep farmers would be permitted to have a share of the money left with the Disestablishment Company. The company is currently holding, on behalf of 13,000 sheep farmers, a reserve fund of over seven million dollars.
