Lucy Stanley Family Trust v North Shore City Council (WHT)

This was a professional liability claim brought by the owner of a leaky building.  Frana acted for the council and its insurer. The claimant sought $332,897 from the council. The Tribunal found that the council was not negligent when it issued the building consent and when it carried out inspections. It escaped liability for the claim made against it.
