- Dean R Knight "Judicial Review: Practical Lessons, Insights and Forecasts" (Working Paper VUW-NZCPL-002, Wellington, April 2010)
It contains - like, I think, any good sermon - three key points:
1. The discipline of judicial review is confusing and uncertain, particularly in some key areas, such as substantive review, review involving human rights or review in areas where the state has departed from the classic model of undertaking public functions.
2. Recognising that the courts are grappling with competing tensions of vigilance and restraint is a better way of understanding the great morass of judicial review cases.
3. Across all grounds of review, there is a reasonably common set of contextual factors which feed into the balance between vigilance and restraint.
As usual, comments, feedback, or rotten tomatoes welcomed!
