Court

Description

Information about the court data in the tables

Totals shown for the courts are the combined figures for the applicable District and High Courts in a particular location. Where cases have been transferred between courts, only the court of the most recent appearance is counted.

Totals in most of the tables have been aggregated to a ‘justice service area’ level, which is the Ministry of Justice's reporting area.

Court data only includes information for courts that are currently open. Statistics on historic cases heard in a court that has since been closed are included in data for the court now serving that area. For instance, statistics on historic cases held at the Otahuhu Court are included in data for the Manukau Court (which opened in 2001).

The Court of Appeal is included in the category ‘Wellington court’ at the justice service area level.
