  1. This is wonderful and very much welcomed news for the victims of the horrific Thalidomide tragedy. It goes to show that eventually justice can be done for drug disaster victims in Australia. I now ask the question: why can’t the Australian legal fraternity front up and publicise the legal state of affairs for DES victims, even if the only recourse is in US courts? Such action would also help spread the word about DES.
