“If Marcus Einfeld was a recidivist, face-smashing, drink-driving football star, he would be doing some nominal “community service”. He would be ostentatiously rehabbing and promising to “deal with his issues”. After a brief interval “focusing on the positives”, he would be mentoring and role-modelling his way into some tacky Hall of Fame, before starting a career as a commentator. Justice James’s decision strikes at the heart of justice: equality before the law.”
