CASL backs claim against Northern Territory government

CASL is backing a claim launched by Phi Finney McDonald and Redgum Legal & Consulting against the Chief Executive Officer (Housing) (Northern Territory) on behalf of Aboriginal people who have lived in public housing in any of 73 remote communities in the Northern Territory at any time from 18 August 2007 to 16 December 2022.

The claim alleges that the CEO breached its contractual obligations to ensure that public housing was habitable, safe and secure, and had a reasonable system for carrying out repairs to ensure those standards were met.
