Support Mark Latham’s Bill to end vexatious complaints

Mark Latham has introduced a proposed law to force the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board to:

  • reject vexatious and frivolous complaints; and
  • reject complaints against people with brain damage.

This bill also clarifies that the ADB has no power over people who do not live in New South Wales and closes a loophole that allows vexatious complainants to bring matters to the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal, even if they have been rejected.

The truth is that none of these changes should be necessary. However, the ADB has become so drunk on its own power that it is out of control. So much so that it needs to be spelled out in black and white writing that vexatious complaints must not be processed.

The ADB has allowed one man, Garry Burns, to lodge hundreds of complaints against me to bankrupt me (even though I don’t even live in New South Wales) and to destroy a brain-damaged man, John Sunol, who has mostly been unrepresented in the legal system for over a decade and fined over $50,000 for his incoherent commentary.

This is an enormous scandal.

You can lodge submissions in support of Mark Latham’s bill here until 26 April.

You can also sign my petition below which will be sent to the parliamentary committee conducting this inquiry. I will also include it in my detailed and lengthy submission.

Support Mark Latham's anti-discrimination amendments

Hello,

For too long the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board has allowed activist complainants to harass people with disability or to target conservatives and Christians with expensive complaints in order to bankrupt them.

This same body also acts beyond its power to 'investigate' people who do not live in New South Wales.

This has cost the New South Wales taxpayer millions and clogs up the legal system with complaints that serve no public good.

There should be an inquiry into this organisation for its liability for the damage and suffering that it has caused by refusing to reject vexatious complaints. This abuse of process has stemmed from the political activism of the Anti-Discrimination Board, apparent in its association with events like the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (a political protest) and its support of controversial political agendas and organisations. In truth, the Anti-Discrimination Board is systemically biased against conservatives and Christians, is akin to a political 'Thought Police' and has no place in a democratic nation.

The Anti-Discrimination Amendment (Complaint Handling) Bill 2020 is a common sense amendment to the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW). I strongly support it and call on the New South Wales parliament to enact this bill into law at the earliest possible time.

  4. I hope that the unjustly jailed Cardinal Pell will commence legal action for compensation. When Lindy Chamberlain who was also wrongly jailed was finally declared innocent, she successfully sued the Northern Territory government for $5 million. This sent a warning which has been heeded in the Northern Territory, ever since.

    Cardinal Pell needs to take similar action, NOT for personal vindication, but in order to HOLD THE VICTORIAN POLICE, THE VICTORIAN GOVERNMENT AND THE COURTS TO ACCOUNT FOR THEIR ACTIONS. Once again, much public money was abused in the pursuit of this vendetta against an innocent, humble and holy man. Those responsible need to be taught a painful and humiliating lesson about the proper use of the power delegated to them by the citizenry who fund them.

    A successful compensation action by Cardinal Pell will have the spin-off benefit to all citizens of making our paid public servants much more careful about how they spend our money and that they remain within the Law, or at least properly established procedure, themselves while enforcing the law.

    • Catholicism is the greatest of all threats to Communism. The attack on Cardinal Pell was an attack on Catholicism by the neo-Communists maggots who are the radical Leftist politicians of the Victorian government, the radical Leftist law-enforcement officers of the Victorian police force, the radical Leftist members of the Victorian judiciary, and the radical Leftist journalists of the Australian media. Retaliation against this filth by Cardinal Pell would be totally appropriate and totally justified.

    • I urge Cardinal Pell to reconsider his intention not to pursue compensation for his appalling treatment particularly by the police. Whist this intention of Cardinal Pell is based upon sound Christian principals there is an overriding necessity, also based upon sound Christian principals, to protect the citizens of Australia from similar abuse of power by the police, Victorian government and the courts.

  5. We certainly are in a rather rough time with this major virus contagion. Methinks though that all is not bad. The personal devastation to so many with loss of work, and the loss of life is as an explosion in our society, our values, our beliefs. Hopefully there will be a sorting out of a number of things, especially in our communities, we can certainly do with looking afresh at how we value one another, just what are decent acceptable practices. Vexatious slander certainly should go.

  6. An overdue amendment in the making, and hopefully an end to to this travesty which has been prosecuted by a serial complainant, and funded by the NSW public purse.
    Mr Gaynor has been shafted from several angles and had the shabbiest of treatment from folk I would have assumed would supported him in earlier times, perhaps when fair play was more evident.
    Not a practising christian but glad this chap had his faith and family to support him.
    A guy to have your back.

    • Rob, i agree whole heartedly with your comment. It is time this Burns character is stopped. He is only after money, and will do anything to get it.

  8. Mark Latham deserves support for his Bill.

    People are concerned about publicly implied religious discrimination and decisions which appear to defy common logic.

    Vexatious actions have been allowed to proceed for far too long at great cost to our community.

    Innocent people deserve a hearing.

  10. It’s paramount to stalking to gain a financial gain , it’s vexatious in nature and he ( Gary Burns ) should be face charges and be jailed !

  11. Bernard should be able to make a legal claim for the years of stress and expenses caused by these claims, and for any abuse received from Burns.

  12. Not only disgusted with Mr.Burns I am much more disgusted with the legal fraternity who continues to let a person like this to lodge frivolous claim after claim in obvious lawfare paid for by the taxpayer against innocent parties that must fund their own costs. His lawyers should be disbarred and all costs incurred by is victims should be refunded (with interest accrued) as his complaints should never have gone so far. Mark’s new bill should allow this financial compensation claims to be made against the claimant (Mr.Burns) and if unable to pay should be covered by his legal team. That would immediately stop such lawfare cases ever seeing the light of day in a court. Good luck Mr.Gaynor, I hope the state of NSW does right by you and refunds ALL of your costs. You could never be completely compensated for what they have put you through

  13. I am relieved to read a good outcome finally had come for Bernard Gaynor! He was politically attacked just like Clive Palmer and it’s disgraceful that some grown adults behave in that manner! This is Australia wake up to your self Gary Burns and co! Your time of slandering etc is over! Crawl back in the holes you all crawled out from.

  14. I support Mark Latham’s bill to end vexatious complaints. As a NSW taxpayer, I am appalled at the apparently frivolous waste of taxpayer money on what appears to be a supportive act of a narcissistic person’s money grab.

  15. i am disgusted that this vexatious litigant Burns is able to make complaints about an intellectually disabled man. As well and his serial attacks on Mr Gaynor. Also the arrogance of the NSW ADB in ignoring the ruling of the High Court of Australia by
    prosecuting complaints about people who live interstate. This illegal activity and
    abuse of power must be stopped.

  18. We must return to a position of real justice. There is no justice when this sort of aggressive personal attacks are condoned and allowed by a court or tribunal.

  19. what has happened to the Gayner family should never, ever be allowed to happen to anyone ever again. It is the most hideous display of insanity via the Courts I have ever witnessed. Thank you Mark Latham to propose this Bill to End Vexatious Claims

  20. I am appalled the the NSW ADB has allowed Garry Burns vicious and vexatious attacks on Bernard Gaynor. Please attend to bona fide matters within your jurisdiction I.e. in NSW and with the right motives.
    I do not want any more flagrant abuse of the system and tax payers’ money.

  21. I am fervent in my support of Mark Latham’s Bill for a proposed law to force the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board to:

    reject vexatious and frivolous complaints; and
    reject complaints against people with brain damage.

    I have followed the absolutely disgraceful farce that has involved Bernard Gaynor for many years.
    He has faced 37 complaints since 2014. He does not live in NSW so I am bewildered as to the continued harrassment against a non-NSW citizen by a vexatious NSW citizen. No one in Queensland has complained about Bernard Gaynor’s behaviour or comments.

    None of the complaints have been substantiated and Mr. Burns has boasted that he has lodged complaints to bankrupt him and that he wants Mr Gaynor silenced for good. The ADB has refused to even investigate whether Burns’ complaints are vexatious and continues to process them.

    The ADB has confirmed that Mr Burns’ complaints against Israel Folou were vexatious and his main objective was money. Why then, does a vexatious claim by a known vexatious Burns still be considered in Mr Gaynor’s matter?
