Further High Court judgments to be delivered this week

The High Court has now listed a further case for delivery of judgment this week, so the (now) three judgments to be delivered are as follows:
On Wednesday, 7 March 2012 at 10:15am is the decision in Strong v Woolworths Ltd.  This is either an important case about the law of causation in negligence cases following the enactment of the Civil Liability Act 2002, or a mundane fizzer about what inferences can be drawn as to whether or not an adequate cleaning system would have prevented the plaintiff’s crutches from slipping on a potato chip on the floor of a shopping centre.  
On Thursday, 8 March 2012 at 10am is the decision in ALH Group Property Holdings Pty Limited v Chief Commissioner of State Revenue.  This case was only heard a few weeks ago, and addresses issues relating to the operation of the NSW Duties Act 1997, and whether or not a Deed of Consent an Assignment constituted an assignment of the benefit of a contract for the sale of land, or a novation of that contract.
On Thursday at 2:15pm is the decision in Equuscorp Pty Ltd (formerly Equus Financial Services Ltd) v. Haxton, in which the consequences of a failure to comply with the prescribed investment scheme requirements of the old Companies Code.  All you crazy restitution enthusiasts may be in for a little treat.
