The Supreme Court has ruled out fast-tracking a challenge by Wakatu Incorporation that has delayed settlement of top of the South Island claims.

The trust lost its case in the High Court over the way the Crown dealt with Maori landowners in Nelson and Motueka amounted to breaches in fiduciary duty, trust law and good faith.

The Government has refused to finalise some Te Tau Ihu settlements because of the case, although Wakatu says its action is completely separate to the treaty settlement process.

Wakatu wanted to go direct to the Supreme Court, as was done in the Paki case over ownership of the Waikato River near Mangakino.

But the Court says Wakatu's claims are more extensive, and it would benefit from what the Court of Appeal has to say about them.

Fabulous Rio
WILLIE JACKSON: I have just finished staying eight days and nights in Rio De Janeiro and I can confirm that I am still alive!  Which might surprise some people given the terrible publicity that we have seen from the media here and internationally.  I can also confirm that I never saw or felt a mosquito, didn’t get mugged, maimed or shot at, drank the water, used the public toilets, walked down lots of side streets and talked to plenty of strangers.
