SEQ floods class action: Deadline approaches as meetings planned

Meeting of flood victims
 at Goodna Martch 2012.
A Brisbane Law firm considering a class action against the Queensland Government over last year's floods says time is running out for victims to sign up.

Maurice Blackburn, along with litigation funder IMF Australia, will hold a series of public meetings across flood-affected areas of Brisbane.

IMF executive director John Walker says the meetings are an opportunity for residents and businesses to hear how the claims investigations are proceeding and to sign up.

Flood victims will be told they don't have long to join the case, with a claim likely to be made in July.

The meetings will be held in the Brisbane suburbs of Indooroopilly, Yeerongpilly, Acacia Ridge and South Brisbane on June 24 and 25.
