Goulburn Mulwaree's neighbouring council Wingecarribee will be heading back to court, in an attempt to recover more than 21 million dollars outstanding from Lehman Brothers.

The Federal Court ruled on Friday that the failed investment bank was responsible for misleading some 72 councils, churches and charities in Australia.

Despite the good news though, Wingecarribee Mayor Juliet Arkwright believes they'll only recover a fraction of the amount owed.

She says the result has been a long time coming and will allow them to re coup their legal costs.
