(Tom: My elder daughter Teal called me last week to tell me her $3,000 fine had been withdrawn but the solicitor still wanted to proceed with the case in court to set a precedent. She agreed. This is the result! Stoked at her courage and the result she helped accomplish for 33,000 other victims of government tyranny.)

Thousands of fines issued during Covid-19 lockdowns have been voided after the NSW government conceded at least two penalty notices issued were invalid.
The landmark case was heard in the NSW Supreme Court on Tuesday when three Sydneysiders challenged the penalty notices issued for Covid-related public health orders.
The three plaintiffs, Rohan Pank, Brenden Beame and Teal Els, were each fined between $1000 and $3000 after they allegedly breached public health orders in 2021.
