Statement on the passing of Judge Guy Andrew

Media Release

I am deeply saddened by the death of Federal Circuit Court Judge Guy Andrew.

My thoughts are with his family, friends and colleagues at this very difficult time.

Judge Andrew was appointed to the Federal Circuit Court in March 2019. His appointment followed a distinguished legal career which earned him wide respect within the legal profession.

I have spoken to the Chief Judge who has assured me the Court is providing support to Judge Andrew’s family and colleagues.

I extend my deepest sympathy to Judge Andrew’s wife, Nicole and his daughters Bridget and Morgan and all those who are affected by this tragic loss.

Taking care of each other on a daily basis, particularly in demanding workplaces, should be a constant feature of our working life.
