"This is a part of my life I wish to leave behind.

This page is here to explain to you the truth of my legal battle so you dont need to ask me questions about it - and so the truth comes out.  I have also had my new mobile clinic sign-written in September, 2013 - with this entire story, as well as sign-writing done on my work vehicle and transport trailer (see pics below), in an attempt to save my business from the damage by the Board from their ongoing publication of the defamatory statement between April 2007 and now - IT IS STILL ON THE INTERNET!!! 

It is my desire and wish to spend time focussing on improving your animals health, instead of talking about the past!

Thank you for your
ongoing support and loyalty"

Kind Regards,

Doc John Jamieson, 
Animal Chiropractor

........................................................................
September 2013

I recently found out that the defamatory statement that has put me in this situation, is still on the internet able to cause me damage.  Like the initial shock, this has shattered me again and bought back memories of the past.

The fact that this defamatory publication is still on the internet, has been known by the Chiropractor Board since at least 2010 - clearly they have done nothing to remove it.

The below exerts are comments made in the Appeals Court by Judges, telling the Chiropractor Board to remove the "Statement Re John Jamieson" from the internet. 

I have not received a reply to my correspondence to the Chiropractor Board solicitors about this.

I myself don't have or know the full truth behind this situation yet.  I will not tolerate any more lies.  I am sick of being asked questions about it and sick of repeating this story to people - feel free to seek out the answers to your questions yourself.  If you do have questions and want to know the truth about this matter please contact these people and ask for yourselves so I can move on.  I sent registered mail to these Board Members of the Australian Chiropractic Board myself on 9 September, 2013, they are:

I apologise for not being able to help animal rescues, and others in need, by doing volunteer work due to this case causing me to be in the financial state that I am in.

Due to this legal battle, I have gone from this:

                     Out of pocket - in a bid for Justice

I have run my case as a self represented litigant, until each hearing when I have needed someone to verbally represent me in Court.  In doing so I have outlaid over $50,000 on this matter since 2009 to run the case myself.  I got back $ 7,500 in awarded court costs......how fair is that?  

To obtain justice I have no other option but to run a legal case, yet it is unaffordable.
  
Legal aid would not help me, no solicitor will operate “pro bono” and get their money at the end.  I was always told the reason for this was that I had little prospect of success......but I won!
  

Shouldn’t you be entitled to get back what you had to spend to bring a matter to court when there is no other way to obtain justice and you have done absolutely nothing wrong?!   The legal system must change.
  
I have had to get someone with no legal experience, and only an administrative ability, to study the
legislation and prepare my legal case with me and file documents for me.
  

The other side have dragged out every part of this matter, which is so wrong when they were the ones to create this problem in the first place.  From when I asked for the number of hits that were made on their website (on the defamatory statement that they published), to seeking court costs from them, they have made it the most lengthy process possible for me to go through (eg. Getting the cost matter assessed by a cost assessor for costs to be awarded, but then appealing the cost assessors decision and asking for it to then be determined by a judge - this cost me another $3025 to have the cost assessment done).  The Board wouldn’t
even disclose the website traffic hits which the defamatory statement had on it, until being served with disclosure papers and attending in court appearance.  Initially they said that this documentation was “inadvertently lost” as was the statement initially “inadvertently published”.  They then disclosed about
770 hits on the Statement to me, from the health boards government website.  I have no proof as to whether this is complete information, were there more hits on this statement?

With the statement still available on the internet to this day, even though the Board has been given instructions on how they, as the website owner, can have it removed, the website hits would have no doubt doubled since the ~770 hit information was given to me in mid 2011.

I bought this dog especially to race in the Cup Feature Races, and to go to Darwin - like all of my greyhounds, as a demonstration of my ability.  His form was very bad when I got him.  I bought him to win the Bundaberg Cup - read more here:   Doc's Racing

SEPTEMBER 2008           Channel 10 News Interview

Doc being interviewed in a news item about the legal case that the Chiropractor Board
of Queensland took against him and subsequently lost. The court case was in the Beenleigh
Magistrates Court in April 2007 and the 'not guilty' decision was handed down on 4 May 2007.
The court case was taken against Doc because of the use of the word "chiropractor", "chiro"
and "chiropratic" in his advertising....the Board claimed they 'owned' the words....the court did
not see it that way!!!

2008

October    
I found out, through a client and now good friend, that this document titled "Statement Re John Jamieson" was put on the internet.  As you can see the date on the statement (below) is actually earlier than the date of the Judgment handed down (above).  By the time I found out about this publication, it had been on the internet for 19 months.  Despite many many requests, the Board did not delete it from their website until December, 2008.  Despite many more requests, including a mention in 2 separate court hearings by judges, this Statement still remains accessible to the public on the internet.  I am showing it here to make it clear that THIS IS the Statement which is THE FALSE PUBLICATION so there is no confusion, since so many people are asking.  I need people to know it is this entire publication that is incorrect.  It's contents are completely untrue.
