Peter DEANS won his Appeal
The appeal hearing was held before Justice NIELD on 19 July 2001. Justice NIELD said in court that when Peter DEANS admitted to grabbing me by the arms that constituted assault. One of the conditions of the AVO was that Peter DEANS was not to come onto the property that I was living in. Peter DEANS did so and left a book on a chair in the court yard with his name on it. In Court Peter DEANS admitted that it was his book. Peter DEANS had breached the AVO.
Justice NIELD dismissed the AVO. Justice NIELD said that I had sustained the injuries when Peter DEANS had a scuffle with me outside my front door. As Justice NIELD left the bench, I said to him words to the effect - “Your Honor, it must be your ‘cup of tea’ to see women assaulted!”
I went to the Court of Appeal, Supreme Court. They dismissed my case and awarded costs against me. The High Court dismissed my case.
I am a little old lady (65 years old). Peter DEANS is over 6’ tall and is younger than I.
