While Druh Farrell may fancy herself as the Queen of Kensington, her royal status held little weight today in court. The judge appears not to have cared if the timing of the legal action is of inconvenience to Druh’s election campaign.
Farrell moved to have the suits filed against her dropped today. While the suits were combined from two into a single suit today, the legal action against Farrell continues.
Farrell clearly tends to feel insecure about her ability to get re-elected as it appears that this is not the first time she has tried to sway the timing of events away from election periods.
In the evidence presented against Farrell, there is a sworn statement from her associate Jeremy Sturgess where it appears that Farrell was trying to influence the timing of the Terrigno’s land redesignation application in order to avoid the application becoming an election issue as can be seen below.
Nothing more inconvenient to face during an election campaign than having to answer questions about development proposals in your ward I guess.
Today the Terrigno family saw a small victory as the effort by Farrell to have the lawsuit tossed out was quashed.
It will be interesting to see what the final ruling on this suit will be. The evidence does appear quite compelling.
