The farming community of Acland in south-east Queensland has won a significant High Court ruling against the New Aclands Coal Mine expansion.
This Wednesday, the nearly 14-year-long legal battle between the Oakey Coal Action Alliance and mining company New Hope resulted in a fresh trial due to bias found in the original Land Court hearing.
The High Court ordered that New Acland Coal pay OCAA’s legal costs of the High Court appeal and withdrew an earlier costs order of approximately $736,000 against OCAA.
