KFC Twister appeal in Australian settlement sucks

In April 2012, KFC was ordered to pay $8 million damages by a judge who found a young Sydney girl was left severely brain damaged after eating a Twister chicken wrap.

KFC decided to appeal.

On Friday, Justice Clifton Hoeben of the Supreme Court of NSW told Michael Jones, SC, representing the fast food chain, that his appeal submissions “don’t come within a bull’s roar of complying with the rules.”

“I get very little assistance from the written submissions,” Justice Hoeben said, adding there was “hardly any law there”.

“They really read as submissions that should have been or probably were made at trial,” he said.

“They are not in the form of submissions on appeal.”
