It has long been common practice to plead s52 as an alternative cause of action in cases involving tort or contract claims, as well as in cases involving breaches of statutory or fiduciary duty and in many other areas. There may often be remedial, procedural, evidentiary or jurisdictional benefits in so doing. All too often however some of the elements or other prerequisites of a successful s52 claim are overlooked. These may be fatal, or at least difficult to cure, and may cause unnecessary distraction, cost and delay.� It is worth having a checklist which would include the elementary as well as the more arcane items that may need to be addressed. � **Friday, 26 February 2010: **_PPS: An Introduction to the _Personal Property Securities Act 2009 A Commercial Law Association halfday seminar 9.15am to 12.15pm, Friday, 26 February, Dixson Room, NSW State Library.
