Cubillo and Gunner Cases (NT)

The Cubillo and Gunner cases were chosen as "lead cases" by the Northern Australian Legal Aid Service Stolen Generation Litigation Unit, in an attempt to establish legal precedent for Stolen Generations cases. They argued that there had been a breach of duty of care by the Commonwealth through inadequate supervision and monitoring of the Retta Dixon Home in Darwin and the St Mary’s Hostel in Alice Springs, where the litigants Lorna Cubillo and Peter Gunner had spent part of their respective childhoods.
