Federal Court: the AAT held a second hearing 20 months after the first hearing. The Appellant made a delayed judicial review (JR) application to the Federal Circuit Court (FCCA), which made a decision 13 months after its own hearing. Questions: 1) if the FCCA accepted the delayed JR application, was it required to consider all grounds of JR contained in that application? 2) did the Tribunal's delay subvert the merits review process? 3) did the FCCA's delay give raise to appealable error?
