‘Confused heap of nonsense’: Man banned from launching Qld court cases

By Toby Crockford

A man known for his confusing and nonsensical applications has been barred from launching any further cases in Queensland courts.

A Brisbane Supreme Court justice has banned Ross James Bradley from instituting any further proceedings in the state’s judicial system after throwing out another of his appeals.

According to court documents, Justice Walter Sofronoff described Mr Bradley’s previous document, filed in the Magistrates Court as part of the same case, as a “confused heap of nonsense”.

“He has previously filed notices of appeal that have been struck out as an abuse of process. I struck out a similar notice of appeal in November last year,” Justice Sofronoff said.

“The notice of appeal in this case continues these precedents. It is a confused hodgepodge of confusion. The notice of appeal should be struck out as an abuse of process.

“At the hearing of this matter, I invited Mr Bradley to submit why his proceeding should not be struck out. Mr Bradley could not formulate a ground but instead persisted in making oral statements that were consistent with the incomprehensibility of his written statements.

“I also invited Mr Bradley to make submissions as to why he should not be declared a vexatious litigant. He made submissions of the same disordered kind, which merely demonstrated further the need for an order to be made to prevent any further abuse of the judicial process by him.

“I am satisfied that Mr Bradley has frequently instituted vexatious proceedings in Queensland ... I am also satisfied that unless an order is made ... Mr Bradley will continue to waste the time and money of the people he chooses to sue, and waste the time and resources of the courts.”

On Tuesday, Justice Sofronoff struck out Mr Bradley’s appeal and banned him from instituting any further proceedings in the Queensland judicial system.
