Anybody been before FM Connolly in Melbourne
Federal Magistrate Michael Connolly - Melbourne
Earlier in the month I asked this question elsewhere and received the following two responses:
Request saidFederal Magistrate Michael Connolly - Melbourne ?
Does anyone know anything about, or have any experience of, Federal Magistrate Michael Connolly (Melbourne, appointed 4 June 2001)?
Response #1 saidI suggest an Austlii search for judgements. You can get a feel for the Judge in that way (sorta).
Response #2 saidPretty sure that was the bloke who said come back at 11.
I was in court at 5 to 11 and he had already made directions!
He said too bad, nothing he could do. I said he could re-hear at 12, or give the other side the same courtesy he had given me, and re-hear it now.
He had important things to read on his desk. I said a couple of things, like I was showing respect by bowing as I left the court. Had the lawyers in court cracked up, and made me feel a bit better.
Did not strike me as the fastest apple on the tree.
This was in 2003, so memory a bit vague.
