Ministry of Justice
Good morning Mr McIsaac,
Thank you for your email.
The information you have requested is court information and is not subject to the Official Information Act 1982, as per section 2(6) of the Act, or the Privacy Act 1993 as per section 2(1)(b)(vii) of the Act. This is because the Courts and judiciary are not part of the Ministry and are independent of the executive branch of the government.
You must apply directly to the relevant court for access to court information. This may attract a fee. Please note that access to court information is governed by specific search rules and the inherent authority of the courts to regulate access to the information under its supervision.
Your request will be considered by either the Registrar or, if necessary, a Judge. Any decision relating to the release of court information is a judicial decision. The Ministry of Justice cannot intervene or comment on this decision-making process.
Court contact details can be found at the following link: www.justice.govt.nz/contact-us/find-us/
