High Court To Open New Pop-Up Court Outside Parliament House

The High Court of Australia will set up a small branch in a marquee outside Parliament House, to keep pace with the daily dual citizenship referrals.

There have been six dual citizenship cases referred so far, with another 85 expected before the end of the month.

A spokesperson for the court said it was a quicker, more convenient way to get through the backlog. “We’re asking parliamentarians to simply take a number, and then sit in the waiting area until they’re called. They’re welcome to get a coffee make a tit of themselves in Question Time while they wait”.

Other pop-up vendors are expected to open in the area to take advantage of the increased foot traffic.
