The judge further ordered Ms Day to pay Woolworths legal costs - and those of a product demonstration company which she’d also sued.
Justice Davis said in his reasons, as revealed in the Courier Mail, that the woman’s conduct had been ‘poor’ and she ‘has a history of making unfounded allegations against judges and unsuccessful applications seeking orders against legal practitioners acting against her’.
It was the final chapter in a court case that had seen its share of dramatic moments. Not only had the woman attempted to have the judge thrown from the case, she also asked that two barristers acting for Woolworths be banned from acting for the supermarket.
The judge has reportedly slammed her for being ‘belligerent’ and ‘mischievous’ and making an “unjustified attack” on other lawyers connected to the case.
Ms Day claimed the incident took place at the Woolworths store in Springfield, Queensland, on December 18, 2014, while shopping with her husband.
She said she’s been left ‘permanently incapacitated from returning to any paid employment’ as a result and required constant care after suffering injuries to her lower back, knee, ankle as well as an aggravation of post traumatic stress disorder.
