Gable Tostee: The Year’s Most High Profile Criminal Trial

Across the country, the trial of Gable Tostee captured the minds of millions of Australians.

Mr Tostee was charged with murder, or alternatively, manslaughter, in relation to the tragic death of Ms Warriena Wright. On 12 October 2016, the highly publicised trial of Gable Tostee commenced before the Brisbane Supreme Court.

Both parties accepted that Mr Tostee did not physically push Ms Wright off the balcony. Instead, the Crown relied upon ‘intimidation’ to prove the offence of murder. The trial was unique in that Mr Tostee had recorded the whole incident on his mobile phone. This recording was the most relevant piece of evidence at the trial. The media reported snippets of this recording, which, in the absence of the full recording, appeared damaging to Mr Tostee. It was always the intention of the defence to ensure that the recording was considered in its entirety and context to be given to it.

Saul Holt QC, instructed by our Principal, Nick Dore, and Law Clerk, Eloise Stroeld worked tirelessly to prepare for Mr Tostee’s matter. After four days of evidence and legal argument, the jury commenced deliberations on 17 October 2016. On Thursday, 20 October 2016, after nearly four days of deliberations, they found Gable Tostee not guilty of the murder or manslaughter of Warriena Wright.

Our experience, and years of running trials have prepared us for any charge alleged against our clients. It was a fantastic result for Mr Tostee, but more importantly, a fair and just result.

Fisher Dore would like to thank the community for the messages of support received during this trial.

I’ve prosecuted against Nick Dore and I’m a fan of his work. If I ever needed a Defence solicitor in my corner, I’d choose him... what can I say, the man is brilliant.
