In 4 judgments released today, 20 September 2021,  Osborne J in Ross v Southern Response Earthquake Services Ltd has allowed Southern Response to communicate its DRA claim settlement package to the 3000 eligible owners over the objections of Grant Cameron lawyers at the same time as owners are informed that they can opt out of the Cameron class/representative claim.  The Court also dismissed the Cameron/Ross application by which they asked the Court to order Southern Response to set aside 15% of any settlement Southern Response agrees with an owner with the intent that the 15% be available to pay Cameron and the litigation funder.  Owners also need to be told about their possible liability to Cameron and the funder if they do not opt out.  Cameron/Ross had also tried to prevent Southern Response settling with owners.  Anyone that settled their earthquake insurance claim with AMI/Southern Response before 1 October 2014 should now contact Southern Response or knowledgeable and experienced lawyers like Grant Shand.  links to 3 judgments here.  Ross v SRESL [2021] NZHC2454; Ross v SRESL [2021] NZHC 2453; Ross v SRESL [2021] NZHC 2452;
