A HIGH COURT judge has ordered the Government to pay damages to the three children and other dependants involved in the multimillion-dollar Arch Cot lawsuit.

Justice Sonia Richards handed down the ruling on Friday giving the ten claimants “liberty to enter judgement” against the Attorney General for damages and costs to be agreed upon after finding that no defence to the suit had been filed or served by the office of the Government’s principal legal officer.

The decision was described a “victory” by a member of the family who has been waiting for almost eight-and-a-half years for compensation following what has been described as one of the most horrific incidents ever in Barbados.

The Shalom Apartment Complex collapsed into a cave, killing Donavere Codrington, his wife Cassandra and their three children in August 2007.
