Rising Tide 7

Rising Tide 7 win! Giants’ compo claim fails on technicality

Statement from Rising Tide 7: Magistrate Elaine Truscott has today (March 3rd) dismissed a $525,000 victims compensation claim brought against 7 climate change protesters on behalf of Port Waratah Coal Services in Newcastle Local court. We are relieved that the claim was rejected but have our concerns that the Magistrate’s decision was based on insufficient evidence, rather than rejecting it as an abuse of NSW Victims Compensation laws.
