The High Court has given Gina Rhinehart orders binding her children to have their claims dealt with by confidential mediation and it has given her children orders that their companies’ claims be dealt with in that mediation.

This is not tax, but it’s so topical, I thought it worth noting. The decisions and the citation are:

  • Rinehart & Anor v Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd & Ors; Rinehart & Anor v Georgina Hope Rinehart (in her personal capacity as Trustee of the Hope Margaret Hancock Trust and as Trustee of the HFMF Trust) & Ors
  • [2019] HCA 13

See below for the full judgment summary.

FJM 8.5.19
