A lawyer acting for Christchurch home-owners short changed in earthquake settlements says a new plan announced by the government is likely to run into trouble.
Last year in a landmark case, the High Court found the government's claim settlement agency, Southern Response, misled and deceived Karl and Alison Dodds.
It ordered the government to pay the couple nearly $180,000.
The government has now set up a package for other Southern Response claimants who settled before October 2014.
Its estimated about 3000 people will be eligible to benefit.
But most of them are already taking part in a class action led by Brendan and Colleen Ross.
Their lawyer Grant Cameron speaks to Corin Dann.
