Phillip Morgan recently published an article entitled, Judgment-Proofing Voluntary Sector Organisations from Liability in Tort, Wills, Trusts, & Estates Law ejournal (2020). Provided below is the abstract to the Article.
Voluntary sector organisations (VSOs) may use ordinary principles of law to protect themselves from tort liabilities by rendering themselves judgment-proof. There are two viable judgment-proofing systems available to VSOs: (1) charitable purpose trusts, and (2) group structures. Whilst these systems are not fool-proof, they offer significant protection from tort liabilities. However, judgment-proofing may come at a high price to the voluntary sector.
