In this episode, BN's Kingsley Grimshaw and Melanie Karibasic discuss a range of interesting cases including a recent Victorian Supreme Court decision which involved a motorbike stunt performer ignoring the warnings of a stunt clown. They also consider the case of an inebriated employee who urinated on a colleague, resulting in consequences for their employer (and others!). Finally, they summarise a significant win for insurers and conformity clauses in the context of yet another COVID-19 business interruption case.
