The Canberra Times has a piece on the legal efforts of Merrilin Lucy Robbins, 60, to sue everyone involved with the 2006 production of Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Trial by Jury” at the Belconnen Community Centre in 2006.
The problem is she fell down the stairs while working backstage:
- The statement of claim also says the singers were negligent by not providing Ms Robbins with a torch or a partner to prevent mishaps in the backstage area.
The singers have yet to lodge a defence while the Government and the community centre both claim they are not liable for the alleged accident.
Because, you know, individuals are incapable of providing themselves with torches as needed.
