Tort Temperature Update – State of QLD vs Kelly (QCA)

  • In this e-Newsletter update we looked at Tort Temperature and the impact on liability insurance.

    At the end of 2013 we flagged the case of Kelly vs State of Queensland as one to watch, although we thought that the Tort Temperature overall was moderate. The Queensland Supreme Court had initially ruled in favour of the injured Mr Kelly, though it could have gone either way. Since our last update, the appeal by the State has been lost. It seems time to have a serious think about the implications.
