Answer this question.
Paul Trawler has recently retired, having run a successful business as a commercial fisherman operating out of Darwin. Paul has always been wary of superannuation funds and is seeking a safer option for the investment of his life savings. Paul consults an old acquaintance, Barry Bigshot, who is an agent for a business investment company, Overnight Millionaires Pty Ltd. Barry convinces Paul that he should invest his savings in the purchase of an old, disused supermarket site in the Darwin CBD. Barry convinces Paul that the asking price of $2.4 million is a bargain as Myer is coming to Darwin and is also looking at purchasing the site. Barry suggests Paul could make $1 million profit by on selling the site to Myer within 12 months.
Paul takes Barry’s advice at face value and invests all his savings in purchasing the freehold for the old supermarket without making any further enquiries. Barry is dismayed 3 months after the purchase to read an interview with the CEO of Myer in which he discloses to the NT News: “We have looked at several sites in Darwin over the past 12 months however, as we confirmed 6 months ago when we purchased vacant land in the main shopping precinct, our preferred option has always been Palmerston”. Paul’s dismay turns despair when he tries to sell the old supermarket and is advised the valuation has come in at $1.5 million.
Paul has instructed you to commence legal action for damages for the loss he has suffered.
(i) Discuss the alternate means of commencing the proceeding. Advise in relation to the appropriate originating process and how it should be prepared.
(ii) In what court would you commence the proceeding and why?
(iii) Who would you name as the parties to the proceeding? Provide reasons.
(iv) Draft a simple endorsement of claim to be included in a writ for the proceeding.
(v) Paul commences the proceeding in Darwin. Barry seeks to have the proceeding transferred to Melbourne, where he now lives, as he wants to call Myer’s CEO (who also resides in Melbourne) to give evidence at the hearing. Advise Paul what matters the NT Supreme Court will take into account in considering whether to order that the proceeding be transferred to Melbourne.

Answer this question.
You act for Jeff Smith, a concreter who has performed concreting work for Dodgy Developments Pty Ltd. Jeff has not been paid for his work. On behalf of Jeff you have sued Mr and Mrs Dodgy and their company Dodgy Developments Pty Ltd (of which they are the sole directors and shareholders) in the NT Supreme Court and obtained judgement against all 3 defendants in a total amount of $575,000.
During the course of the hearing it became evident that Mr Dodgy was an evasive man who was assessed by the Court as having little credibility. You also concluded that Mr Dodgy had probably structured his finances to guard against actions being brought against him and that he is more than likely a man of straw.
During cross-examination Mr Dodgy gave evidence that he mostly subcontracted to Cheapie Homes Pty Ltd and that payments were made from Cheapie to his company on a regular basis. You also learn that Mrs Dodgy is employed with a local accounting firm and receives a regular salary.
Mr and Mrs Dodgy live in a palatial home at Cullen Bay however the house is registered in the name of Mrs Dodgy alone. The home is decorated with valuable antiques and artefacts. You also learn that Mr Dodgy is owed $30,000 by a local bookmaker and settlement date is to be next Friday.
Advise Jeff of his legal options in respect of recovering the judgement and what steps you will be taking on his behalf to recover the debt from the defendants. Refer to authorities and the Supreme Court Rules in your answer.
