The defence of joint illegal activity must be looked at in context
Stickley, Amanda P. (2011) The defence of joint illegal activity must be looked at in context. Queensland Lawyer, 31(2), pp. 78-81.
In Miller v Miller (2011) 85 ALJR 480;  HCA 9 the High Court examined the complex issue of joint illegal activity. The issue before the court was whether a plaintiff who had engaged in an illegal activity with the defendant may claim damages in negligence. In its decision the court analysed the cases of Henwood v Municipal Tramways Trust (SA) (1938) 60 CLR 438, Smith v Jenkins (1970) 119 CLR 397, Jackson v Harrison (1978) 138 CLR 438 and Gala v Preston (1991) 172 CLR 243.
