Thank God For NZ Judges
NZ lawyers are warned by the Courts not to talk about pending cases – in the interests of justice. Judges in New Zealand dispense suppression orders – by the hundreds each year according to one Canterbury law professor – to further protect “justice” through secrecy.
Compare this to the public relations campaign by Supreme Court Judge Bill Wilson, who faces removal from office for presiding in a case where he had an undisclosed conflict of interest..
Billy the judge has filed an application asking a lower court judge to rule the Attorney General-appointed Judicial Conduct Panel has no power to remove him.
This week, Supreme Judge Billy – who was a mediocre lawyer looking for work 4 years ago – issued his own press release. His cadre of lawyers have blanketed the New Zealand media with an email pushing the Judge’s defence that he is a persecuted man AND offering to provide the Court-sycophantic media with further lawyer comment in support of this blinkered defence.
