Unsuccessful application by H for leave to appeal against High Court ('HC') decision dated 15 February 2013 refusing to grant her special leave to appeal against District Court decision refusing leave to appeal - H also sought order rescinding decision dated 15 February 2013 and to correct errors in that judgment.

Held, applications for correction and orders rescinding decision had to fail as statutory provisions did not confer such a wide power and such applications should not be opportunity to re-litigate same issues for which appeal would be appropriate course - application for special leave not appeal before HC for purposes of ss 162 and 163 Accident Compensation Act 2001 (ACA) - no jurisdiction in this Court to grant leave to Court of Appeal under s 163 ACA - application declined.

Legislation Cited

  • Accident Compensation Act 2001 s 162, s 163
  • Interpretation Act 1999 s 13
  • High Court Rules R 7.49

NZ LAW actually states...any dispute with ACC should be under Judicial Review ie: High Court!

the hidden law commission report that we were never meant to see....

I suggest everyne make themselves familiar with how badly the injured / disabled are being ripped off

IMHO of course.
