Lee v Rea

 

[2004] QSC 186

SUPREME COURT OF QUEENSLAND

CIVIL JURISDICTION

JONES J

No 220 of 2004

JEREMY LEE

Applicant (Plaintiff)

and

 

TOME REA

Respondent (Defendant)

and

 

SUNCORP METWAY INSURANCE LIMITED

Respondent (Defendant by Election)

CAIRNS

DATE 18/05/2004

JUDGMENT

HIS HONOUR: This is an application to dispense of the compulsory conference pursuant to section 51A(5)(b) of the Motor Accident Insurance Act 1994.

The problem confronting the applicant is that despite significant investigations as to the cause of the applicant's condition, these investigations have not yet resolved the cause of the plaintiff's complaints.

As a consequence, he is not yet in a position to attend a compulsory conference which would be meaningful. In those circumstances it seems to me that the better course is for the plaintiff to fully investigate his case and that the matter would proceed perhaps in accordance with a different time frame.

I will make the orders by consent in terms of the draft initialled by me and placed with the papers.
