By Hannah Hall, Law Graduate

Grant v Bird [2021] VSC 380 is a recent Supreme Court of Victoria decision, which develops the law concerning institutional liability and the administration of justice. In the judgment, His Honour considered circumstances in which it would be manifestly and unjustifiably unfair to require defendants to meet cases brought against them, including reliability of memory of the lapse of time since the alleged abuse occurred and the death of the alleged perpetrator before being confronted by allegations of the abuse.
