Bankruptcy – procedural fairness
Right to fair hearing
Hayes v Pioneer Credit Acquisition Services Pty Ltd  FCA 1113 (30 July 2018) concerned an appeal from the Federal Circuit Court in which a sequestration order was made against the estate of the appellant pursuant to s 52 of the Bankruptcy Act 1966 (Cth). The appellant (a litigant in person) succeeded on the ground that he was denied procedural fairness at the hearing of the creditor’s petition in circumstances where he was removed from the courtroom and therefore not able to give evidence or make submissions.
