Judge to challenge conduct panel move - national | Stuff.co.nz

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? Of course the Attorney-General as a self confessed Latinist, as the Dominion-Post described him (others with more education may say classicist or scholar) will be aware of this tag. I guess the judge considers that the decision by the Judicial Conduct Commissioner got something wrong-and if a Supreme Court judge thinks that, that must carry some weight. So, if the judicial review proceeds, and goes to the Court of Appeal and then to the Supreme Court, who will make the decisions? New Zealand is such a small place, with so few judges.
