Peter Graham (judge)

The Hon Peter Ross Graham is a Justice of the Federal Court of Australia.

Pre-judicial career

Graham was educated at the University of Sydney and Harvard University. He commenced practice as a barrister in New South Wales in 1966, before becoming Queen's Counsel in 1982, practising mainly in commercial law. He served for a period as Acting Judge of the New South Wales Supreme Court in 1997.

Judicial career

Graham was appointed by Attorney-General Philip Ruddock as a Justice of the Federal Court of Australia on 7 April 2005, taking up his position on 24 May 2005.

Graham sits in the Sydney registry of the court. Some of his notable judgments include:

: *"Minister for Immigration & Multicultural Affairs v SZFDE" [ [2006] [ FCAFC 142] ] : Graham joined with Justice James Allsopp in the majority of the Full Bench of the court in holding that the fraud of a migration agent did not lead the Refugee Review Tribunal into jurisdictional error. Graham and Allsopp's judgments were overturned by a unanimous judgment of the High Court of Australia ["SZFDE v Minister for Immigration and Citizenship" [2007] [ HCA 35] ] .: *"Telstra Corporation Limited v Minister for Communications, Information Technology and the Arts (No. 2)" [ [2007] [ FCA 1445] ] : Graham J rejected a claim for legal professional privilege over internal legal advice prepared by in-house lawyers for Telstra. This created concerns in the legal community as to the extent that in-house legal advice is protected from disclosure to a court [Allens Arthur Robinson Publication, [ "In-house lawyers and claims for privilege"] , September 2007] . Graham is the presiding judge in litigation between Telstra and the Commonwealth of Australia over the awarding of a billion-dollar broadband contract to a competitor.
