In response to a case brought by the ACCC the Federal Court declared (on Dec 22, 2014) that Homeopathy Plus! Australia Pty Ltd ACN 134 266 149 and Frances Mercia Sheffield have engaged in conduct that was misleading and deceptive, or was likely to mislead and deceive, in contravention of section 18 of the Australian Consumer Law.
The full judgement is now posted at:

This complaint was first lodged with the Complaint Resolution Panel (CRP) in 2011 and referred to the TGA by the CRP later that year. After a new investigation, the TGA “ordered” a retraction (which was not complied with by 2012) where upon a complaint was sent to the ACCC who finally got a Federal Court judgement in late 2015.
My 2012 complaint to the ACCC can be found here.
