Follow-up on the news

In 2015, Global Military Justice Reform reported on a case in the Federal Court of Australia concerning whether a reservist could be discharged for homophobic comments he made online. The Defence Force appealed and prevailed before a three-judge panel of court earlier this year in Chief of Defence Force v. Gaynor [2017] FCAFC 41. The case is discussed here and here. The reservist, ex-Major Bernard Gaynor, has applied for leave to appeal to the High Court. The High Court's website does not indicate any action on the application.
