I have initiated a claim against an Australian superannuation fund in the Magistrates Court in Perth and the initial response was the defendant applied to strike out my claim on the basis of estoppel because I had previously complained to the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal. I believe the SCT is under the jurisdiction of the Treasury. My query is, does a complaint via the SCT prevent a person from legal action in the courts? I thought estoppel only applied in the case of previous legal action in which case a writ would have been served.
