    Southern Response's lost bid to have a court decision overturned for a Christchurch quake claim case, could cost it nearly 700-million dollars

    Southern Response's lost bid to have a court decision overturned for a Christchurch quake claim case, could cost it nearly 700-million dollars


    A Court of Appeal ruling has mostly dismissed the appeal by the government-owned insurer against a High Court decision last year.

    The High Court ruled it misled and deceived Karl and Alison Dodds by keeping a higher estimate to rebuild their quake-damaged home secret.

    The judgement's largely been upheld in the Court of Appeal.

    The Dodds' lawyer Peter Woods says claim misrepresentations made to thousands of other homeowners could cost the agency up to 675-million dollars.
