Do others think this is ready to publish? If so, I'll let you do the tag change as it seems a bit rude to self publish. Alternatively please flesh it out with your own sources.

I think this article could use at least four-five more sentenses giving background about some of the aspects:
  • Who is mounting the challenge?
  • What are these secret trials?
  • What is the constitutional challenge about (i.e. what does the constitution say that the challengers are asserting)
  • What is the government's position?
If you can add some of this information, it'll definitely be publishable. -- IlyaHaykinson 05:35, 15 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
I'll have to locate this info (Does anyone else know??). If I can find the info I'll expand as suggested.John Dalton 05:39, 15 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
Hmmm... looks like the ABC are the only ones reporting it at the moment. - Borofkin 05:46, 15 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
I suggest just searching something like Google News for info on this by whatever info is around. If you can't find some info, just attribute the nebulous stuff to the ABC. -- IlyaHaykinson 05:47, 15 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
So far I'm just sitting tight to see if any more comes out on it. Also doing some searching around press council websites etc. to find who is taking the action. Can't see anything on the NSW supreme court's website.John Dalton 06:02, 15 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]

I decided to publish the article after adding some more information to it and tiding it up. A great find from the original editor, it's a very interesting article. Shame there wasnt more information about it earlier - given it's media organisations launching the challenge you would have thought they would have publicised it a bit more - Cartman02au 03:22, 17 December 2005 (UTC)[reply]
