"Putting Plaintiffs Through Their Paces"

The author criticises the interpretation of the Court of Appeal decision in Kuwait Asia Bank EC v National Mutual Life Nominees Ltd [1989] 2 NZLR 50 by the Privy Council ([1990] 3 NZLR 513), which has led to the importation of the good arguable case on the merits as part of a two stage inquiry to establish jurisdiction under R 219. Instead, the good arguable case should only be invoked where there is a genuine dispute as to jurisdictional facts.
