Postion & Titles:
Judge of: High Court, Auckland Associate Judge 2005
Specializations and Professional Interests: Economics
Professional Comments:  Seems to be a no nonsense judge. Looks to the substance of an issue rather than its form, requiring hard evidence if a contention to the seemingly apparent is to be made.  May lack patience for arguments that are not developed quickly and unlikely to be swayed by compassion arguments.
