Reid Mortensen, 2010
This article provides a close analysis of the trans-Tasman civil jurisdiction and judgment scheme that exists between New Zealand and Australia. Analysis focuses on comparing and contrasting Australia’s domestic conflict of laws rules with the scheme set up by the Trans-Tasman Proceedings Act 2010. In particular the schemes failure to address issues of lis pendens is focused on. However, the author is clear that the shortcomings of the scheme should not be over-emphasised.
