Pomare: Farmer Cres tenants last opportunity

The never ending story continues with another twist

The three Pomare women fighting eviction from their state homes have been given a final opportunity to overturn earlier court rulings that the evictions are lawful.

They sought leave on Wednesday to appeal against a High Court decision which ruled against them.

Their lawyer Liz Hall said the case raised important questions which deserve further consideration.

Housing New Zealand said the women have already been turned down by three courts and there is no need for a fourth hearing.

Justice Wild declined the women’s application for leave to go to the Court of Appeal but he acknowledged they can still make a special application to that court.

He says if that is not made by 25 November, the women will be required to vacate their homes on 4 December.
