In 2014 when Tim Carmody, a former police officer, was sworn in as Chief Justice of Queensland, he had been Chief Magistrate for only nine months and had never served on the Supreme Court. It was one of the most controversial judicial appointments in Australia's history. Chaos ensued. 

Appointed by then-premier Campbell Newman, Carmody lacked the experience and nous to hold Queensland's judicial system together. How could someone with a limited judicial background be appointed to such a powerful position? The Tim Carmody Affair explores his damaging and divisive tenure and the judicial rebellion that followed. It proposes ways Australia can improve the process of judicial appointments to avoid this kind of controversy again.
