Nathan Buckley and a Victorian law firm threaten to sue Premier Dan Andrews.

For those of you who don’t know who I am, my name is Nathan Buckley. I am a Partner of G&B Lawyers, a law firm based in Sydney.
We presently have a Fundly campaign to end the lockdowns and reopen Australia. The intention is to challenge all State’s lockdown restrictions in the High Court starting with Victoria.
This naturally extends to people who are unable to return to Australia from overseas and to people who wish to leave Australia.
The reality is that none of the restrictions, orders or directions of each State is compliant with the Constitution of Australia.
Sections 7 and 24 establish that Australia is governed by a representative government. None of the restrictions were passed through the ordinary houses of parliament. A handful of bureaucrats on the advice of medical experts have resulted in Ministers creating directions and orders that are beyond power. They are what is known as ultra vires.
Secondly, only the Commonwealth has the power to make laws with respect to quarantine. This is expressly stated in section 51(ix) of the Constitution. Therefore, every State that has introduced 14 day quarantine restrictions are beyond power and should be struck out.
We should challenge the constitutional validity of all lockdown restrictions including travel and quarantine restrictions. However, we need funding to do so. It is expensive to fight this litigation in the High Court.
As a baseline, we need $1 million. The quicker we can raise that money, the quicker we can challenge these unconstitutional restrictions.
