Janet Smith and the Federal Council of the ACDS wish to advise that the dispute between Janet and
the ACDS in the Western Australian Supreme Court has been mutually resolved.
The ACDS regrets that Janet suffered the considerable anguish and expense of commencing
proceedings as a result of the ACDS’s handling of complaints that were made against Janet. The
ACDS acknowledges that there are two sides to these complaints. Having now had the opportunity
to revisit its position, the ACDS will not pursue the expulsion of Janet.
Janet and the ACDS are now keen to move forward in the best interests of carriage driving in
Janet will therefore remain a member of the ACDS and the ACDS looks forward to her contribution
and positive input to the ACDS moving forward.
