Class action by primary producers
We acted in a significant $50 million class action claim in the Federal Court. Thirty five farmers Australia wide sued an agricultural machinery manufacturer for crop losses arising from a defective cultivator. The matter involved complex engineering issues relating to policy interpretation, contract law, Trade Practices law and negligent misrepresentation. After mounting a strong defence, we successfully achieved a commercial settlement after six weeks of trial for a relatively nominal contribution by our client.
