Home / Timber Creek native title compensation claim brings High Court to NT for first time
5 Sep, 2018

The High Court is sitting in the Northern Territory for the first time in history to hear a native title compensation case hailed as one of "the biggest test cases in Indigenous rights since Mabo".

The case will set a precedent about how to calculate native title compensation, as these provisions in the Native Title Act 1993 have never before been tested in the High Court.
