Injunction continued again

By Steven | March 7, 2008

The Hawkes’ Bay Health Board injunction has been continued by consent until after the report is finalised and made public, slated for 17 March. The parties can bring it back before the court before then if circumstances change.

I think this is probably a savvy move by Fairfax and APN. It will blunten the “we’re just protecting the process” arguments in favour of suppression, and sharpen any public interest arguments¬†about what’s been changed or deleted,¬†once we’ve seen the official report.
