Brisbane and Ipswich meetings to update floods class action registrants

12 December 2013
Maurice Blackburn Lawyers and Bentham IMF will host meetings in Brisbane and Ipswich for floods class action registrants in the coming weeks.

Meetings will be held for people registered for the class action on Sunday 15 December at The Greek Club in South Brisbane and on Monday 16 December at the Metro Hotel in Ipswich. There will also be an opportunity to register for the class action an hour before each meeting.

Residents and businesses have until 28 February 2014 to sign-on to the class action, after which the class action will be filed in court.

The meetings will play an important role in helping to update registrants on the next steps regarding the class action and to ensure residents and businesses have a final opportunity to meet in person with the legal team running the case ahead of the 28 February 2014 sign-up deadline.

The meetings will be hosted by Maurice Blackburn Principal Damian Scattini and Bentham IMF's John Walker and Andrew Charles.
