Judge reserves decision in McLean case

Judge reserves decision in McLean case

Jarrod McLean began legal proceedings in the Supreme Court in Melbourne yesterday in
a bid to win an injunction against information Racing Victoria received after a Victoria Police
raid in January. McLean’s legal team, headed by Andrew Broadfoot, QC, argued to Justice
Melanie Richards that some information obtained by police in the raid should not have
been shared with RV under the provisions of section 465 of the Crimes Act and under
privacy and human rights concerns.

McLean faces RV charges of being in possession of an illegal electrical device and for conduct
prejudicial to the image of racing arising from the raid in January this year that led to leading
trainer Darren Weir being banned for four years for the possession of jiggers. The hearing
ended at about 4:40pm, when Justice Richards announced she was to reserve her decision on
the matter.
