"Asbestos, Australia and ACC"

This contribution examines the implications of the New Zealand Accident Compensation Scheme for asbestos-related trans-Tasman disputes. The authors focus on the significance of establishing the place of the tort in these cases of negligent omission (failure to warn) in order to determine the lex loci delicti commissi. Jurisdictional issues, such as forum non conveniens, are also considered briefly.
