Newcastle Local Court has today deferred judgement on the $525 000 victims’ compensation claim against the Rising Tide 7 brought by Port Waratah Coal Services, after two full days of hearings. The judgement will be delivered on March 3.
The case is an important test case for civil liberties and the right to protest in NSW.
The PWCS’ claim is an example of corporate bullying in the face of rising concern about coal and climate change.
