CHAPTER 7 - FINANCIAL SERVICES AND MARKETS  

PART 7.10 - MARKET MISCONDUCT AND OTHER PROHIBITED CONDUCT RELATING TO FINANCIAL PRODUCTS AND FINANCIAL SERVICES  

Division 2A - Proportionate liability for misleading and deceptive conduct  

SECTION 1041Q   SUBSEQUENT ACTIONS  

1041Q(1)   [ Multiple split action]  

In relation to an apportionable claim, nothing in this Division or any other law prevents a plaintiff who has previously recovered judgment against a concurrent wrongdoer for an apportionable part of any damage or loss from bringing another action against any other concurrent wrongdoer for that damage or loss.

1041Q(2)   [ Recovery amount limited]  

However, in any proceedings in respect of any such action, the plaintiff cannot recover an amount of damages that, having regard to any damages previously recovered by the plaintiff in respect of the damage or loss, would result in the plaintiff receiving compensation for damage or loss that is greater than the damage or loss actually sustained by the plaintiff.
