    Not to my knowledge. I only read what I could in any newspaper online.

    Re: AFL club Western Bulldogs rocked by historical child sexual abuse scandal

    If it's a jury trial then there will be very little reasoning for the decision.

    Was the club on the balance of probabilities negligent in its obligations in keeping a minor safe from harm. Did the club owe a duty of care to the minor to keep them safe from harm. Did the club through its acts or omissions allow a minor to be abused thereby failing in its duty of care.

    The appeal is likely to be an alleged error in law in that the jury was wrong to extend the duty of care to the club for the actions of a volunteer. The key is the omissions in this case. If the facts can prove that mangement at the club knew or were made aware and did nothing, well regardless of standards now and back then, we are probably liable, but if no one in a position of authority was aware, and there was no safeguarding requirements etc back in the 80's then the claim is harder to prove and damages will be lower as a consequence - mitigating factors.

    If the Bulldogs case resulted in ~$6m of damages. The Perth Wildcats should be facing $600m. What the Wildcasts are accused of doing is at least 100 times worse than the Bulldogs accusations https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-11-...ault/102958610

    Re: AFL club Western Bulldogs rocked by historical child sexual abuse scandal

    There is a new article about this on the Australian website which I cannot access behind its payroll payroll.

    The headline says Child sex abuse case costs AFL's Bulldogs $7.4 million.

    The copy underneath says the Western Bulldogs AFL team has added $1.5 million worth of costs to it's nearly $6 million sex abuse compensation bill.

    Perhaps someone with a subscription to the site could post the article.

    OK missed that.

    So much for The Australian and its news.
