143 Continued jurisdiction of courts and application of law
Despite the repeal of sections 9 and 10 of the
Petroleum (Timor Sea Treaty) Act 2003
by this Part, those sections continue to apply in relation to civil matters that:
were described in subsection 9(1) of that Act (as in force before that repeal); and
relate to an act or omission that occurred before that repeal; and
involve damage suffered, or expenses incurred, before that repeal.
S 9 formerly read:
SECTION 9 Jurisdiction of State and Territory courts
Subject to this section, the courts of each State and Territory are invested with federal jurisdiction in civil matters:
relating to an act or omission done in the JPDA; and
involving damage suffered or expenses incurred by:
Australia, a State or a Territory; or
a person who is a national, or permanent resident, of Australia.
The jurisdiction with which courts are invested by subsection (1) is invested within the limits, other than limits having effect by reference to localities, of their respective jurisdictions (whether those limits are as to subject-matter or otherwise).
This section does not limit the jurisdiction of the courts of a State or Territory arising otherwise than under this section.
