A GP has staked more than $100,000 in crowdfunded cash on a class action lawsuit for patients allegedly injured by COVID-19 vaccines.
Dr Melissa McCann has been named the ‘litigation funder’ for a 654-page case filed in the Federal Court of Australia this week.
It means the Whitsundays GP and cosmetic doctor will be responsible for covering all legal costs if the case fails.
However, she will have access to funds of $120,000 that she has raised via fundraising website mightycause, with a goal of eventually reaching $650,000 in donations.
The case names the Australian Government, Professor Brendan Murphy, Professor John Skerritt, Professor Paul Kelly and former health minister Greg Hunt as defendants.
