Abstract

This article analyses the Kable principle through the lens of one of the High Court's more recent Kable pronouncements, Attorney General (Northern Territory) v Emmerson — in which a territory law providing for forfeiture of property owned or controlled by a convicted person was held to be valid — and assesses the significance of this case as a bellwether indicator of possible future challenges to state and territory laws based on Kable.
