58B Direct appeal to Supreme Court from Maori Appellate Court in exceptional circumstances


A party to an appeal under section 58 may, with the leave of the Supreme Court, appeal to the Supreme Court against all or part of the determination of the Maori Appellate Court on the appeal.


On an appeal under subsection (1), the Supreme Court may make any order or determination it thinks fit.


This section is subject to section 75 of the Senior Courts Act 2016 (which provides that the Supreme Court must not give leave to appeal directly to it against a decision made in a court other than the Court of Appeal unless it is satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances that justify taking the proposed appeal directly to the Supreme Court).

Section 58B: inserted, on 1 January 2004, by section 46 of the Supreme Court Act 2003 (2003 No 53).

Section 58B(3): amended, on 1 March 2017, by section 183(b) of the Senior Courts Act 2016 (2016 No 48).
