Brisbane and Bremer River Floods Class Action: Link to Statement of Claim in NSW Supreme Court

Click here for the link to the full 153-page Statement of Claim filed by Maurice Blackburn Lawyers in the New South Wales Supreme Court on 8 July 2014 on behalf of the Brisbane and Ipswich 2011 flood victims who have signed up for the class action.

The case will be heard in the Supreme Court commencing 18 July 2016, unless settled sooner by the parties.

The action has been commenced in NSW because Queensland does not have a Class Action regime.
