THE WA Parliament passed comprehensive uniform national gun control laws, this week, 10 years ago, bringing the state into line with the rest of Australia. WA was the last state to pass the laws, which were drawn up as part of a historic national agreement in the wale of the Port Arthur massacre. WA this week 10 years ago - Andersen court win SYDNEY property developer Warren Anderson won a small victory in the WA Supreme Court this week, 10 years ago, during his $50 million legal action against the WA Government. Justice Michael Murray dismissed an application by the government requesting Mr Anderson lodge a security of $680,000 in the event he failed in his legal action. Mr Anderson claimed the government owed his company, Tipperary Development Pty Ltd, $27 million plus interest over a complicated property deal made during the WA Inc era in 1988. Lawyer Ken Pettit, in lodging the government’s application argued Tipperary was listed as a $2 company and had liabilities of $3.4 million. But Justice Murray said he could not make a judgment that Tipperary was “insolvent by the ordinary test” or that is was unable to pay an award of costs in any amount, because there was no information on which the court could rely to come to those conclusions.
