This month’s Proctor looks at the Supreme Court of Queensland decision in Maggs v RACQ Insurance Limited, which has expensive implications for minors who bring a dependency claim for wrongful death. The May edition also examines a recent High Court matter that reveals a curious circumstance which may arise when lots are amalgamated. We also explain how the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal draws its power to make orders from a range of enabling Acts, and ask the Queensland Commissioner for Body Corporate and

Community Management to explain how practitioners can make use of the services his office provides. There’s plenty more in the May issue of Proctor, including an interesting report on the relationship between domestic violence and job termination for both victims and perpetrators.
