David Ipp

The Sydney Morning Herald has reported the passing of David Ipp QC, formerly a Judge of the Supreme Court of Western Australia, a Justice of the New South Wales Court of Appeal and a Commissioner of the NSW Independent Commission against Corruption.

He was also of course the chair of the panel which produced the Review of the Law of Negligence 2002 (Cth), which considerably influenced the law across Australia.

NSW Governor Margaret Beazley, who sat with Mr Ipp on the Court of Appeal remembered his sharp intellect, quick mind and “ferocious appetite for knowledge”.
