Eddie Michael Awad & anor v Twin Creek Properties Pty Ltd [2011] NSWSC 922

Brereton J

5 So far as a statement of expert opinion in a business record is concerned, I do not consider that the so called Makita principles [seeMakita (Australia) Pty Ltd v Sprowles (2001) 52 NSWLR 705] affect the admissibility of such an opinion, so that a bare statement of opinion in a business record is admissible, although the absence of reasoning of the type called for by Makita may well go to its weight, and may go to considerations relevant to Evidence Act, s 135, as they do here.
