Southern Response Concealment

Class Action - New Zealand

15 February 2021 Hearing - Reserved Decision

On 15 February 2021, the Court heard an application by Southern Response to communicate directly with members of the class about possible settlements – without supervision from the Court or Mr and Mrs Ross (as the Court approved representatives of the class) or their legal team. Mr and Mrs Ross opposed this application.  

After a day of legal submissions the Judge has reserved his decision, meaning that he will consider the arguments that were presented and release a written judgment in due course.
