High Court judgement a victory for common sense

We note the High Court of Australia’s unanimous judgement to uphold the appeal in Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd & Anor v. Begovic.

FCAI Chief Executive, Tony Weber, said this judgement gives much needed clarity and certainty to the industry.

“The judgement is a victory for common sense and backs in government-mandated fuel consumption labels,” Mr Weber said.

The High Court found that by complying with the letter of the law manufacturers are not in breach of Australian Consumer Law.
