[LINK] Courts wrangle over cyberstalking
Tue, 27 Mar 2001 09:25:39 +1000 (EST)
An interesting court case about the ability of an Australian being
pursued by the Canadian courts, which I guess follows on from the
Tobin (sp) case and the Yahoo case... although I could be mistaken...
Courts wrangle over cyberstalking
A criminalogist has urged Australian governments to fast-track new
computer crime laws after a further appeal was lodged in a
controversial cyberstalking case.
Brian Andrew Sutcliffe, 37, who is accused of stalking a Canadian
actress by e-mail, has appealed against the decision of a Supreme
Court judge that the case can be heard in Australia.
The judge overturned an earlier ruling by a magistrate who had
dismissed the charge, arguing lack of jurisdiction.
