Neither side will discuss the legal bill for the case…….Glen Eira Council also did not respond to a question of whether its lawyers had asked Mr Penhalluriack to sign a confidentiality agreement. ‘No Comment’ or both sides refusing to answer questions can only mean one thing in our view – there is a confidentiality agreement and these usually involve some kind of ‘settlement’. The only ‘settlement’ that would make any sense in this case would be if council, after withdrawing its charges, has decided to hand over some money to Penhalluriack.
