But the court did not think that that was enough to require the bowls club to instruct its staff to increase their supervision of Mr Gregg.
It was argued by Mr Tilden that increased staff and CCTV coverage would have prevented the assault. The court rejected that argument and said that because the assault occurred quickly those measures wouldn’t have prevented the assault in any event.
Mr Tilden succeeded in getting a judgment for $37,111 against Mr Gregg. But his case against the bowls club was dismissed.
