Melchoir v Cattanach [2003, Australia]

In similar circumstances to McFarlane v Tayside Health Board, a parents’ claim was successful, and the possibility of a successful parents’ claim was left open, despite dissent of the financial implications of such a decision.

However, legislation then reversed this possibility; parents’ claims are now also barred in Australia.
