    I think the issue is more that she was having s.ex! Why else is it all over the news yesterday? Plus, there are 2 people who've questioned why she didn't just keep quiet or why she has pursued this, as if she should be embarrassed for having a good time.

    Absolutely agree. The fact she was having sex was totally irrelevant. Its a legitimate claim - which is why it was paid.

    And workcover/her employer should now seek compensation from the hotel id think.

    Sorry SAB that wasn't my intention, just my view.

    She was away. On a WORK trip. She was injured.

    This is what happens when somebody is on a work trip and they are injured. The media are just turning it into a circus because it was a woman having s3x. She could have simply sat on the bed and the light could have fallen on her and the claim would be exactly the same.

    I also find it incredibly sad that a 'professional' who deals with WorkCover claims would question what 'kind' of person would use her right to make a claim for an injury that occured while on a work trip
    You don't need to try and insult me by putting the word professional in inverted commas. I am a professional in this area. And as I said I have also read the court documents. Have you? There is more to it than in the media, funnily enough.

    I fully support people making appropriate claims. In my view this is not an appropriate one, for the reasons I have stated. If it happened to me I would not have claimed - that is what it comes down to. Clearly most of you would, and that is up to you.

    Even if the claim is unwarranted, I don't think it's professional to talk about the 'kind' of person she is.

    Sorry, but are you judging other people based on what you think may be your decision in this scenario? That's unfair. I have seen it before in sexual assault cases where people think it was wrong for someone to have pressed charges because they never would have, despite not having been in the situation themselves.

    If you are a professioanal in this area and have read the court transcripts I'd suggest it sounds like you are in a priviledged position and it's incredibly unprofessional for you to make a comment and breach confidentiality

    What's so sad is that a moral judgement on this woman's character has been made due to the fact that she was having sex. Which leads me to the why I need feminism thread.

    Sigh. No I am not in a privileged position. They are public documents.
