The proceedings were lodged in the High Court in Wellington on 5 August, asking for the case to be accorded urgency.

The Court is being asked to declare that the Minister got the law wrong and should release some or all the information asked for, including draft texts.

This application for judicial review is being brought in the names of Consumer NZ, Ngati Kahungunu, Oxfam, Greenpeace, Association of Salaried Medical Specialists, New Zealand Nurses Organisation, the Tertiary Education Union, and Professor Kelsey who made the original request.
