#ITC19: Corinna Horvath and Dyson Hore-Lacy SC on Horvath
In March 1996, police raided Corinna Horvath’s home without a warrant. She spent several days in hospital as a result of the raid. She pursued a claim against the police officers involved, and against the State of Victoria. The dispute lasted more than 20 years, through a County Court trial, an appeal, and a complaint to the UN Human Rights Committee. It lead to fundamental change in litigating claims of police misconduct.
