Mark and Others v Henshaw (1998) 155 ALR 118

After entering the premises of a battery hen farm, the Federal Court found Mark and others did not have a ‘reasonable excuse’ to trespass, breaching s 11(1) of the Public Order (Protection of Persons and Property) Act 1971. The Court clarified the two-step test in determining whether a ‘reasonable excuse’ applies, finding that the dominant purpose of the appellant’s actions was not reasonable.
