Information Sources


This series comprises registers of applications made to the Supreme Court, Court of Criminal Appeal for appeals against judgments made in a lower court, or in the Central or Northern Courts of the Supreme Court. These registers provide indexes to appeal files created by the Court. Under the Supreme Court Rules (Order 70), an appellant may, by notice of motion, appeal against the whole or any part of a judgement or order handed down in a lower Court. Under Section 5 the appellant was responsible for filing in the Supreme Court Office at Brisbane, a copy of the notice of motion to appeal.

These registers record the following information: annual single number at top left hand corner, names of litigants, when and where convicted, offence, sentence, prison or address, date when case reserved/received, date of notice, date when notice received, judgement or order appellant wishes to appeal against, grounds of appeal, whether appellant had applied for any favours (eg. legal aid, leave to be present, further witnesses to be called, etc.), date and appellate Justice. Information recorded under the heading 'Full Court' includes date appearing before Justice, counsel for the appellant, counsel for the Crown and judgement. Summary details of the result of the application and the file number relating to any subsequent action is noted. Some entries were cancelled or written off as a 'notice of abandonment' and dated. It is likely that a notice of abandonment was issued where the appeal was refused.
