1   Re Pukeroa Oruawhata Trust
5 October 2005. 293 ROTMB 74-81. Judge LR Harvey
This was an appeal against a decision varying a trust
order to provide for rotation of trustees (oral decision,
10 February 2005, 287 ROT MB 148). The Court confirmed
its earlier decision.
The decision also provides reasons for the earlier oral
decision on an additional trustee election, postal voting
and the mandate of the Trust to represent Ngati Whakaue
in all claims before the Waitangi Tribunal. These issues
were not appealed.
Re Rurima Islands Mdori Reservation
23 December 2005. 108 WHK 148. Judge LR Harvey

The applicant, along with four others, were appointed
responsible trustees to the Rurima Islands Maori
reservation pending a meeting of beneficiaries in an earlier
decision of the land court (see Maori LR September 2004
ppl-2). These trustees, along with 5 others, sought
permanent appointment as trustees. The land court adopted
the reasoning of the Maori Appellate Court in ReMatata
903-RangitihiMarae ((2004) 10 Waiariki Appellate Court
MB 233) regarding the appointment of trustees. The land
court confirmed the existing trustee appointments, but
declined to appoint any additional permanent trustees,
instead appointing four of the five other nominees advisory
trustees, subject to their agreement. The land court made
a number of observations concerning the reservation.
