Queensland jury trials open for plaintiffs with asbestos disease

2 Sep 2020

Jury trials for plaintiffs suffering from asbestos related disease allowed by the Supreme Court of Queensland. On 1 September 2020 His Honour Martin J delivered reasons for dismissing the defendant’s application for an order that the trial proceed without a jury on the basis that while documents to be put into evidence are “lengthy” they will not require “prolonged examination”. Excellent outcome for plaintiffs. A significant turn of the worm. Judgment link below.
