It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since the death of former auto insurance lawyer Tony Wallace.
He was shot and killed by police outside his home in 2014, just days after his daughter was diagnosed with cancer.
Wallace had become embroiled in a long legal battle with the Australian Federal Police (AFP) over his handling of the death.
His death prompted a landmark Supreme Court decision which declared a right to life was an essential human right.
And with the Supreme Court case in the process of being appealed, he will never see his property returned.
A new challenge to the right to privacy is now being brought by the family of the woman who was shot in his driveway.
