Who is Tony Morris?
Tony is a well known Queensland barrister. In 1992, he was appointed as one of Her Majesty’s Counsel at the age of 32, the youngest such appointment in Australia’s legal history, and the youngest QC appointed in any Commonwealth country during the Twentieth Century.
He has also served as a director of Queensland Investment Corporation; as a member of the Advisory Council of the Queensland Conservatorium of Music; as a Councillor of the Canine Control Council (Queensland); and as Chair of the Bundaberg Hospital Commission of Inquiry.
In February 2016 QUT Administrative Assistant Cindy Prior sued three QUT students for comments made, or allegedly made, after she evicted them from the computer lab at the university’s Oodgeroo unit in May 2013. On November 4, 2016 Federal Circuit Court Judge Michael Jarrett ruled there was no case to answer.
As a result of this litigation the reputation of the Human Rights Commission, together with its then president, Gillian Triggs, was severely damaged; the case against Section 18C of the Human Rights act was re-opened by a Federal Parliamentary Inquiry; Cindy Prior went close to bankruptcy; and three young men had their lives torn apart over innocuous comments.
