Contumacious Contempt of Court


A claim of "contumacious contempt of court" has been brought in NSW Supreme Court related to Nightcap Nightmare Blog, for revealing the "folly" of a prospective land-share scheme involving Adrian Brennock and Phillip Dixon.  


A SLAPP action by Brennock and Dixon against Gillian Norman (Gi Linda) has been ongoing since 2017. "SLAPP" is an acronym for a "Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation," intended to inflict sufficient harm by abuse of legal process to obstruct opponents of a dominant commercial interest.


A 2020 NSW Supreme Court judgement by Fagan J against Gillian Norman  in the defamation matter Darwin v Norman, determined that sale of Residential Lots by Mark Darwin, Adrian Brennock (aka Andrew Brennon, AB), Richard Moate and Phillip Dixon, with failure of consideration causing substantial loss and harm to investors, may be dismissed as "folly" not fraud


Fagan J's orders also include a permanent prohibition on publication of certain opinions about the Bhula-Bhula-Nightcap venture, including claims that Brennock and Dixon deceive and defraud investors who consequently loose their life savings.


Extract from Orders:

"2017/00081825-001 Statement of Claim: Mark James Darwin v Gillian Linda Norman

Brennock and Dixon accuse Gi Linda of causing them financial lossThey claim it would be a breach of Court Orders if readers could infer from Nightcap Nightmare Blog that, from 2014 until 2021, investors have been deceived and misled by Brennock and Dixon in a fraudulent land-share venture involving sale of Residential Lots without development consent.


The contempt charge, Darwin v Norman was started in 2020 by Brennock and Dixon under the name of Mark Darwin who discontinued his defamation claim in 2019: [2020] NSWSC 357


The contumacious contempt trial is listed for May 14, 2021, in NSW Supreme Court before Judge Sackar. Gillian Norman, represented by barrister Kieran Smark SC, thanks to a referral from NSW Bar Association, does not admit the charges.


Nightcap Community acolytes are assured by promotors that suppressed information published online in Nightcap Nightmare Blog will be removed by Court order.
