Final report into Michael Lawler, "an undignified spectacle of a middle-aged quasi-judicial figure" who should have been sacked

Here is the final report by Peter Heerey QC into Michael Lawler, "an undignified middle-aged quasi-judicial figure presenting on national television home movies of overseas holidays with his girlfriend, accompanied by saccharine lovers' chit chat".

Heerey found good reason for a joint sitting of both houses of parliament to have dismissed Lawler.  Instead Lawler resigned - however we don't yet know whether he was permitted to do so with his entitlement to his $250K indexed pension or life.
