CIV 2011-404-7392
UNDER The Declaratory Judgments Act 1908
BETWEEN BRADLEY CHRISTOPHER GEOFFREY AMBROSE Plaintiff
AND THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL Defendant
Hearing: 22 November 2011

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
