Green light for the Montara oil spill class action

15 November 2017

Justice David Yates granted the lead applicant in this Australian class action an extension of time to bring the claim in accordance with Northern Territory requirements.

Seaweed farmer Daniel Sanda, representing thousands of affected Indonesian seaweed farmers, can therefore proceed to lead the claim.

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers who run the class action, will now focus on presenting the farmers’ evidence and seeking appropriate redress for those who have had their lives severely impacted by the oil spill.
