High Court of Australia Judgment delivered 20 April 1994 (Appeared for the wife led by D.F. Jackson Q.C.)

The High Court decided that  the Family Law Act 1975 confers power  on the Family Court of Australia the power to make an order authorising a person to carry out on a child of a marriage medical treatment in New South Wales that is intended, or is reasonably likely, to have the effect of rendering the child permanently infertile, in circumstances where the carrying out of the treatment would otherwise be contrary to the Guardianship Act 1987 (NSW)?
