COURT OF APPEAL
CA No 161 of 2018
MC No 20671 of 2017
BRADLEY, Ross James Applicant
WEDNESDAY, 18 JULY 2018
SOFRONOFF P: In this matter, Mr – your name is Ross ‑ ‑ ‑
APPELLANT: Your Honour, I am Ross James. That is my legal name. My ‑ ‑ ‑
SOFRONOFF P: Yes.
APPELLANT: ‑ ‑ ‑ given ‑ ‑ ‑
SOFRONOFF P: Thank you.
APPELLANT: ‑ ‑ ‑ or Christian name.
SOFRONOFF P: Yes, thank you. In this matter, Mr Ross James Bradley has purported to file a document in the form of a notice of appeal. From the document and from what Mr Bradley has said this morning, it appears that he was charged and convicted on five charges brought by complaint and summons arising from his failure to comply with directions made under the Census and Statistics Act 1905 (Cth). Mr Bradley had also attached to his document a notice of the registration of a debt arising from the penalty imposed upon him in the sum of $996.15. There is no right of appeal from the Magistrates Court to this Court. The document that he has filed contains the following:
“In my appeal hearing, the following is posited and it will be strongly argued that R v Bradley is a common law jurisdiction, that it can only be so because R is Regina is juristic or represents the Crown and Bradley is the name of my person at the common law. That can be equally protected or punished by the Crown.”
The rest of the document contains similar material. The document is therefore both incoherent and incompetent. I direct the registrar to take no further steps in relation to it.
APPELLANT: Gee, that is sad, your Honour.
SOFRONOFF P: Sorry?
APPELLANT: With all due respects, that is very sad to hear.
SOFRONOFF P: All right. Thank you.
