Looters, scammers and class actions

with 2 comments

There are reports of a class action being taken against a private electricity company and
the Victorian Government.

The legal battle will centre on a fallen power line that is believed to have caused the blaze that tore through Kinglake, St Andrews and Steels Creek, killing more than 100 people, The Age newspaper reports.

The Nine Network said police had removed part of the power line and a power pole as part of their investigation into the matter.

Who would be mounting a “class action” one week after this tragedy?

The victims’ trauma prevents rational thinking at the moment.  It sounds more like vultures from the legal profession trying to milk the system.  Should this be the case, they are no better than ‘looters’ and ‘scammers’.

  1. “Who would be mounting a “class action” one week after this tragedy?”

    I wondered the same thing. But its more than likely the insurance companies on behalf of the residents they have insured.

  2. I will be really p*ssed off if, after accepting the outstanding generosity of the Australian public, those who have lost everything in the bushfires then join a class action against the government tax payers.
