Foreseeability of pure economic loss and causation

By Amanda P. Stickley

Abstract

In Bonny Glen Pty Ltd v Country Energy [2009] NSWCA 26 (24 February 2009) the New South Wales Court of\ud Appeal held that the pure economic loss suffered by the appellant was recoverable. However, rather than\ud arguments as to whether the appellant was vulnerable and a member of an ascertainable class, whether the\ud respondent had knowledge of the risk to the appellant and was in a position of control and considerations as to\ud indeterminate liability as in Perre v Apand Pty Ltd (1999) 198 CLR 180, the arguments raised related to the\ud foreseeability of the loss and causation
