The Law Commission has announced that it will review NZ’s laws of contempt of court. This will involve a discussion paper about the issues, to be issued next year.
I wonder how this fits with another issues/discussion paper commissioned by the government and issued almost exactly two years ago: Reforming the New Zealand Law of Contempt of Court - An Issues/Discussion Paper, by Tony Smith, the co-author of the leading text book on contempt.
Perhaps the idea is to produce issues papers every two or three years and hope the problems sort themselves out.
