There is something I find puzzling about the policy that the coalition that formed the government from 1994 to 1997 had towards women who became infected with Hepatitis C because of contaminated Anti-D plasma derivative. The way in which Michael Noonan handled the Bridget McCole case is well documented.

However, I don't know how the State would have defended itself against a case taken by victims of the infection if such a case had gone to trial.

It couldn't be disputed that the women had received Anti-D and had become infected with Hepatitis C. In that case, there is no other logical explanation for the infection that could be thought of, as far as I know. Surely, the State wouldn't have gone so low as to suggest that the women had become infected by other means, e.g. use of illegal drugs.
