Australia: Former Qld Court of Appeal judge to lead review of The Star casinos

The honourable Robert Gotterson – who served as a judge of the Queensland Court of Appeal until late 2019 and is a former Bar Association and Law Council president – will lead an independent external review of the operations of The Star casinos in the Sunshine State.

According to Attorney-General Shannon Fentiman, the Palaszczuk government is determined that Queensland casinos are operated lawfully, ethically and in a way that maintains the highest standards of integrity and public confidence.

Mr Gotterson, she said, “will bring a wealth of judicial experience to the role. His honour served on both the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal before retiring in 2019”.

The former judge will be assisted by Jonathan Horton QC.
