Support our momentous appeal case defending the New Zealand Bill of Rights from being trampled and overridden by ill conceived laws.
Last year the High Court erred in law when determining that the right to refuse medical treatment under s 11 of the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 (the Right) was not absolute. This is the main grounds on which NZTSOS are appealing the High Court's ruling. This momentous case will be heard in the Court of Appeal appeal before three judges on April 19th 2023. We will be expertly represented by Matthew Hague from Frontline Law. To finalise the legal preparation and have him argue our case in court, we need to raise the last $6,000 to get us there! Please support us.
Money will be spent on the final legal preparations and getting our lawyer before the Court of Appeal.
When will we hear the result? 26 July 2023
Update from our legal team:
The Court of Appeal has an indicative timeframe of three months for releasing decisions, we are at that point now. They aim to have 80% of civil decisions released in that time, and they generally manage to do so.
Having said that, they could take longer and there is nothing we can reasonably do, at least yet. There are about 0.1% of judgments at the CA level that take longer than six months.
I can follow up at the end of this month if we still haven’t had a result, hopefully that will move them along.
Part of me hopes that they are taking this long because they are grappling with the issues and might be finding in your favour – but who knows!
