Australian Securities and Investments Commission v Young QSC 123
SUPREME COURT OF QUEENSLAND
No S745 of 2003
AUSTRALIAN SECURITIES AND INVESTMENTS COMMISSION
KATHLEEN CLAIR YOUNG
THE INVESTORS CLUB LIMITED (ACN 077 935 865)
LISSON PTY LTD (ACN 069 072 742)

HIS HONOUR: I order in terms of the draft initialled by me, copies of which will now be provided to you. I have a couple of observations to make.
The first is that if, on the part of the applicant, there is any disappointment in the limited scope of the order I have made, the applicant can take solace in the fact that, if I had made an order in the terms requested by it, it would not have applied to any of the participants in any of the subject schemes.
And a glance at the definition of each scheme in paragraph A where it is confined to the promotion of property developments to members of the third respondent will show why that is so. I did not, as it turned out, get a great deal of help from the document provided.
As for the respondents, it would certainly be desirable if they could curb what seems to be their natural tendency to disseminate misleading information, particularly in relation to the contents of pronouncements made in the Court. There are plenty of examples of that sort of conduct, or more appropriately, misconduct.
I have given liberty to apply, and one occasion in which that liberty might be able to be exercised is if the respondents persist in that form of conduct, in which case it may be necessary to make orders which are somewhat more draconian.
Before we depart I will invite you gentlemen to look at the text of that letter which I am requiring be despatched to see whether you notice any obvious defects in it. That is in paragraph 7B.
