INDEED

Since when has ACC had any claim to any basis to delegate's duties under the legislation on any matter and in particular its judicial duty to appoint reviewers?

As the legislation requires ACC to set a review hearing date and appoint a reviewer the question arises as to whether or not a claimant will benefit from a deemed decision if Fairway Resolution Ltd has without the authority of the law supplanted the ACC given the fact that ACC will have failed to comply with the legislation.

Dear All

My interest in this is the fact it comes directly on the heals of the write up in the paper re: the use of Reviewers and the selling of the whole of the Review process.

This looks like one more step towards a complete Tribunal process. Without the judges but within the hands of the justice Department.

Going to be an interesting time in the next year. (If not before.)

Mini how are you figuring that if Fairway employ the judges (reviewers) that our judicial process is somehow coming under the control of the Justice Department? Seems to me that the exact opposite is happening and that the judgement process is in the process of being totally privatised, at least in the minds eye of Fairway and no doubt the ACC.

A lawyer of the talent that Fairways is asking, is as able as any Judge who is just starting off. Apart from that I do not recalling saying that fairways will employ the Judges. The justice dept will do it and it will probably be the same ones we have but in a Tribunal. As it says the Reviewers in tow at the moment are very well trained and will be including other disputes, maybe even family Tribunal ones. Who knows.

it doesn't matter a blink what we say, whatever will happen will happen and you misterperting my words will not make that go away. So stop stirring it.

Why do you imagine that fairway would be advertising a job for the Justice Department?

As I have always said about you, you are capitulate surrendering to the will of the bureaucrat.

Proper people however insist that the bureaucrats are under our control, we the people.

Greg anyone would be loony tunes to believe that private enterprise can employ judicial staff or even speak on behalf of the judiciary.

Of course it is in the ACC interests for everyone to surrender the authority of the legislation in favour of some kind of win-win negotiation type approach.. ACC had misbehaved in this way right from the very beginning! How the they! Such behaviour is nothing short of sedition.

An insurance policy is the ACC legislation. The ACC are nothing more than administrators. They certainly have no authority whatsoever to enter into any kind of negotiations in order to come up with some kind of "win win approach.. The notion is ridiculous. Further to that Greg anyone who imagines that they are going to enter into negotiations with a multibillion-dollar Corporation with the thought that they are going to acquire all of their entitlements are nuts. The legislation came into existence to guarantee our entitlements. What we must have,, and it is not negotiable, is absolute obedience from the ACC!

Read again: Where did I say that that fairways will employ the judges. In fact, I have denied that claim, as above. Drop it Thomas. You are so off point you don't know if up is down or not.
