A top Queensland barrister will use case law dating back 200 years to try to avoid a $146 speeding fine.
Tony Morris QC is mounting a landmark legal challenge against Queensland's speed-camera laws, The Courier-Mail reports.
Mr Morris says he wasn't driving when his Volvo was photographed doing 57km/h in a 50km/h zone last year.
But he won't say who was behind the wheel.
He has invoked a spousal privilege case from 1817, arguing it's unconstitutional for a Queensland court to fine him when there's evidence he was not the driver.
