Selected Cases Simon was briefed on behalf of the State of New South Wales, the Minister administering the National Parks & Wildlife Act, 1974 and the Roads and Traffic Authority as the second most senior counsel in 30 (primarily) corporate claims arising out of the Thredbo landslide. Those claims were principally for pure economic (business interruption) loss, but also included property damage and claims for nervous shock. The matters involved complex procedural, factual, technical and legal issues and drew from a large factual background founded in over 20 years of administration of parts of Kosciuszko National Park and the longest inquest in Australian history. In the matter Simon was assisted by 4 junior counsel. The hearing regarding issues pertaining to liability, only, took over 115 days before adjourning to mediation. Other notable cases in which he has been involved include: Murray Morgan Investments v Capma Pty Ltd [2016] NSWSC 264, Hidden J – successful application by the wife to transfer proceedings for possession of property occupied by the wife to the Family Court for determination in proceedings between the husband and wife regarding matrimonial property.  Opposed by Senior Counsel; Realcover Insurances Pty Ltd v Arthur J Gallagher (Aus) Pty Ltd [2015] NSWSC 1986, Stevenson J – on behalf of the defendant insurance broker, successfully opposed application for preliminary discovery; Leto v Coffey Projects (Australia) Pty Ltd [2015] NSWSC 1896, Young J – on a separate hearing, successfully opposed defence founded in the principle of Anshun estoppel, as well as applications to dismiss for want of prosecution and for security for costs.  Appeared with a Junior Counsel against Senior Counsel; Cartwright v Cartwright successful applications to Bergin CJ in Eq on inter partes hearings for freezing orders against individuals, a company and third parties; Purnell Motors Pty Ltd v Jones (No 2)[2014] FCCA 1617 – secured summary dismissal of the bankrupt’s applications to extend the time to apply to set aside the sequestration order made against him, and for orders to set it aside and for annulment of his bankruptcy also securing an order for indemnity costs; Re: Jones; Ex Parte Purnell Motors Pty Ltd – secured sequestration order against the judgment debtor (based on judgment for costs); State of New South Wales & Anor ats Warragamba Winery Pty Ltd & Ors [2012] NSWSC 701 – successful defence of claims by 25 plaintiffs for property loss suffered when a bushfire escaped from Blue Mountains National Park across Warragamba Dam.

Secured freezing orders against the prospective judgment debtor (with respect to the prospective judgment re costs of the Defendant) and third parties to whom he had transferred real property; Permanent Custodians Ltd ats Spina [2008] NSWSC 561, Hammerschlag J – opposed the application by Senior & Junior Counsel for relief under the equitable principles of unconscionable conduct and under the Contracts Review Act and on the basis of absence of authority of an attorney purporting to exercise authority under a power of attorney. The matter is notable for Hammerschlag J’s conclusion, in construing the power of attorney the subject of those proceedings, that Austin J wrongly did so in the then recent proceedings, Spina v Conran Associates Pty Ltd; Spina v Endurance Pty Ltd [2008] NSWSC 326; McArthur & Anor ats Westpac Banking Corporation [2007] NSWSC 1347, Barrett J – briefed to appear on behalf of two principals of a group of transport companies, the McArthur Group, who the Bank contended had defrauded it and to advise them in their capacities as directors and shareholders, generally.

Drivers of the Group’s trucks were employed by an overseas hire company and there was media coverage of picketing by drivers. Austin J made freezing orders against the directors, ex parte.  At short notice Simon appeared on the first return of the motion and then appeared, opposed by Senior & Junior Counsel for the Bank and the receivers, on the inter partes hearing. The Second Defendant (for whom Simon appeared) opposed the continuation of the ex parte freezing orders. On the inter partes hearing Barrett J declined to continue the orders against him. Thereafter, another financial institution appointed receivers to real property of another company in the Group and a provisional liquidator was appointed to the company in the Group, which owned the real property; Toda & Ors ats Parbery [2007] NSWSC 1163, Barrett J – appeared on the return of notices for production issued by the receivers of real property under s 431 of the Corporations Act to a solicitor, the company and the directors.
