I remember reading something about it at the time, but it came back to me when I came across this blog. It concerns a mother and daughter who sued Geelong Grammar because the daughter failed to gain admission to law at Sydney University. The daughter had apparently been identified as "gifted" but it was said that she failed to apply herself to her studies. The suggestion seems to be that the school didn't do enough to motivate her. The claim against the school (based on breach of contract and misleading and deceptive conduct) was made despite the daughter achieving marks sufficient to gain admission to another law course (after completing the year at another institution). To my mind, based on observations over a number of years, litigation has to be a last resort, so how this case even got to first base totally eludes me. The tribunal threw it out.
