Shaw saga - some news

The Australian is reporting "State to pay costs of Shaw retrials":

In response to questions from the Opposition, Attorney-General Bob Debus agreed taxpayers' money would have to be spent to compensate parties to Mr Shaw's five outstanding court cases and issued a public apology.

Those cases to be reheard apparently include a medical negligence suit, a personal injury case, a criminal appeal against sentence and conviction, and a request for an inquiry into a criminal conviction.
