Trespass

Hill v Higgins [2012] NSWSC 270. Harrison J. 

  At [36]: “Trespass is actionable without proof of material loss. A deliberate trespass is not a trifling matter.

  “In Plenty v Dillon (1991) 171 CLR 635 at 654-5, Gaudron and McHugh JJ said this:

  “In his judgment, the learned trial judge said that, even if a trespass had occurred, it was ‘of such a trifling nature as not to found (sic) in damages’.

  “However, once a plaintiff obtains a verdict in an action of trespass, he is entitled to an award of damages.”
