Stevenson Whelton Successfully Appeals Partial Summary Judgment Ruling in Solicitor’s Negligence Dispute

Stevenson Whelton lawyer Neil Wilson recently successfully appealed a summary judgment ruling in a solicitor’s negligence case.  The case, Butera v. Chown, Cairns LLP, concerned franchise litigation involving a Mitsubishi automobile dealership that was dismissed on the basis of a missed limitation period.  The Court of Appeal allowed the appeal from a ruling granting partial summary judgment and provided guidance about when a motion for partial summary judgment will not be appropriate.  A copy of the decision can be found here.
