Media Release from Ipswich Councillor Paul Tully: Flood victims gather to plan class action
A meeting of flood victims will be held tonight to consider a class action against the state government for losses suffered in the 2011 flood.
The meeting convened by Ipswich councillor Paul Tully will be held at the Goodna State School at 7 o'clock.
Lawyers from Maurice Blackburn will be in attendance to explain flood victims' rights as momentum gathers for a billion dollar class action in the wake of the release of the Floods Commission final report.
Cr Tully urged flood victims from across Ipswich and Brisbane to tonight tonight's meeting.
"This is an opportunity home home and business owners as well as renters to recover property and contents losses, decrease in house and land values and pain and suffering as a result of the flood.
"I urge all residents to attend this important meeting with almost 2000 people already signed up for a class action against Seqwater and the state government.
"This will be the largest class action ever undertaken in Australia and flood victims are entitled to be fairly compensated for this man-made flood," Cr Tully said.
