The Statement of Claim filed on behalf of Wattlebrae Stud was served on the lawyers for the Commonwealth Government in Sydney about a month ago.
We expect to receive a Defence to the claim in the next couple of weeks.
Once the Defence is filed the issues in the case will be narrowed and a decision will be made about the next step in the litigation.
The lawyers for the Commonwealth have requested particulars of some aspects of the Statement of Claim. We are now in the process of responding to that request.
A copy of the Defence filed by the Commonwealth Government will be made available on the website when received.
