Coffin Cheaters were called before a secret hearing of the CCC last year to answer questions about a violent brawl their gang had with members of the Finks at the Kwinana Motorplex.

The Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) in Western Australia has dropped a contempt case against two bikies who refused to give evidence about a brawl with another bikie gang.

The Coffin Cheaters were called before a secret hearing of the CCC last year to answer questions about a violent brawl their gang had with members of the Finks at the Kwinana Motorplex.

One Finks member was shot in the leg while another, Stephen Wallace, had three fingers severed. Two other bikies were also injured.

Five members of the Finks, including Mr Wallace, were later jailed for two years for refusing to answer questions about the fight.

The two Coffin Cheaters were meant to face a hearing in the Supreme Court today but the lawyer for the CCC said it no longer wished to continue with the case.

The CCC had refused to hand over documents sought by the bikies' lawyers.

The court heard the CCC had issues with the extent of the material it would have to disclose to the bikies for the case.

The bikies were awarded an undisclosed amount in court costs
