NSW Supreme Court appointments

District Court judges Deborah Sweeney and Richard Weinstein have been appointed to the NSW Supreme Court, with Supreme Court Judge Christine Adamson appointed as a Judge of Appeal.  

Attorney General, Mark Speakman congratulated the appointees, who he said bring decades of judicial experience to their new roles.  

“Judge Sweeney was appointed a judge of the District Court 16 years ago following a distinguished term as a magistrate of the Local Court and contributions to the work of the Independent Commission Against Corruption, the NSW Crime Commission and the Office of the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions,” Mr Speakman said. 

“Judge Weinstein was appointed to the District Court in 2019 after a 20-year career at the New South Wales Bar, with an eminent practice in common law and equity. His Honour was an exemplary mediator with a common sense approach to alternative dispute resolution. 

“Justice Adamson has sat as a judge of the Supreme Court’s Common Law Division for more than a decade, following a distinguished career at the Bar. Her Honour has an extraordinary work ethic, and her expertise will be invaluable to the Court of Appeal.” 

Judge Weinstein will be sworn in on 1 February 2023, and Judge Sweeney on 8 February 2023. Justice Adamson will commence as a Judge of Appeal on 3 February 2023.
