Privacy Commissioner lodges appeal to Federal Court re Telstra Corporation Limited v Privacy Commissioner

11 February 2016

On May 1 2015 the Privacy Commissioner, Timothy Pilgrim PSM, determined that Telstra Corporation had breached National Privacy Principle 6.1 in the matter of Ben Grubb v Telstra Corporation Limited [2015] AICmr 35.

Telstra appealed the determination to the Australian Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

On 18 December 2015 the Tribunal set aside the Commissioner’s determination, substituting a finding that no breach of NPP 6.1 had occurred.

On 14 January 2016, having considered the AAT’s decision, the Privacy Commissioner filed a Notice of Appeal from a Tribunal to the Federal Court of Australia.
