Katherine Contamination Class Action

Omni Bridgeway is unconditionally funding a class action (the Class Action), being run by Shine Lawyers, against the Commonwealth of Australia (Department of Defence) (Defence) in connection with land contamination arising from the Defence’s use of aqueous film forming foam at the RAAF Base Tindal, Katherine, in the Northern Territory (the Site).

Current stage of case

On 5 June 2020, the Federal Court of Australia approved the $92.5 million settlement of the Katherine Class Action, appointing Shine Lawyers as the administrator of the Settlement Distribution Scheme (SDS) and approving the terms of the SDS.
Registrations to participate in the Katherine Class Action are now closed.

How do I find out more about the Class Action?
