Document Actions


Transcripts documents contain the transcripts of the hearings in the Supreme Court of New Zealand. The transcripts from appeals, heard from 1 July 2004 are published excluding cases where suppression bars publication. Transcripts from pre-trial hearings are not published until the final disposition of trial.

These are unedited transcripts and they are not a formal record of the Court’s proceedings.

The Ministry of Justice does not accept responsibility for the accuracy or completeness of any material and recommends that users exercise their own skill and care with respect to its use.

Note transcripts for cases heard before the Supreme Court are located under the relevant case summary provided they are not suppressed. Also included (again where suppression does not apply) under the case summary are the relevant judgments from the Supreme Court (leave, substantive and any other judgments), media releases plus judgments from the court appealed from.
