The plaintiff sought various forms of substantive relief on the basis of human rights, however the Court considered that this was based on a “fundamental misconstruction” of the Human Rights Act 2019 (Qld) and did not consider it necessary to deal with such submissions. As such, there was no substantive consideration of human rights by the Court.
