The matter has now been placed on a Supervised Case List in the Supreme Court in Brisbane.

This means that the court will now conduct regular reviews of the matter to ensure that both parties are moving the matter towards a resolution in a timely fashion.

The first review date with be in May.

In the meantime, we have almost finalised the evidence of each of the witnesses who will be giving evidence at the trial.  260 witnesses gave evidence at the Inquiry. We have narrowed that to around 40 for the test case.

It is important that we keep our records of everybody who has registered an interest in the class action accurate and up to date. If there is any doubt whether we have current contact details for you, please let us know.

Please note that email is our preferred means of communication.

If you are aware of anybody who was adversely affected by the escape of the EI virus in August 2007 who has not yet registered an interest, would you please urge them to do so.

We must be able to calculate with reasonable accuracy the number of claimants and the potential amount of the claim as a group.

Should you require any further information in relation to this matter, please do not hesitate to contact Holly Gilholme on 07 5506 8202 (
