Mylo and his owner lost at the VCAT hearing yesterday before Senior Member Davis. The Panel is arranging for senior counsel to draw Supreme Court appeal papers. Mylo is safe as relevant assurances have been sought and received pending the filing of the appeal application. The Panel thanks in particular Carolyn Burnside of counsel for her excellent advocacy, her junior counsel Elizabeth Tueno, and instructing solicitor Michael Faltermaier. Save to say that the Panel will arrange for counsel to conduct the leave to appeal and appeal applications and to appear at any subsequent VCAT re-hearing that may be directed (before a differently constituted Tribunal), the Panel is unable to make any further comment.
