A judge has dismissed claims that three intellectually disabled men were subject to inhumane treatment while in care, instead giving a glowing review of their carers. The trio, all charged separately with violent offending, were detained in hospital units in Auckland and Porirua. They sought declarations from the court that their treatment was in breach of the Bill of Rights Act and up to $325,500 in compensation, Fairfax reported. Their claim, brought before the High Court at Wellington, spans about 13 years. Justice Rebecca Ellis delivered her judgment yesterday.
