50 Most Recent High Court Opinions

The 50 most recent opinions are ordered by the date that they were published.

Most court decisions are given verbally by judges in court. Written decisions will usually be provided following a case when it involves:

  • a matter of principle
  • a particular point of general public importance
  • a case where substantial evidence was heard.

When decisions are given in writing, they are published on the website, unless judges rule that there are exceptional circumstances in the interest of justice for a particular case not to be published.
