    Legal news publisher Vince Siemer was last week declared a vexatious litigant by order of the Wellington High Court after Justices Brendon Brown and Ron Young concluded actions at the heart of his disputes were not vexatious but that he, at some point after filing them, pursued them vexatiously.

    The judges declared Parliament needs to enact legislation similar to Canada and Australia which judges can apply to litigants acting as Mr Siemer who, despite not instituting vexatious claims, had numerous judicial rulings declaring their actions vexatious.

    The problem, according to Mr Siemer, was he could never obtain a hearing. He says the Attorney General plaintiff had originally pleaded cases he was prevented from defending – indicating a systemic blindspot regarding corruption by judges who are all white and belong to the same clubs but which the government wrongly believes act independently. He claims his misfortune lied in pursuing a Queen’s Counsel, a connected accountant and the Solicitor General. None ever went to a hearing.

    The accountant, Michael Stiassny, won a million dollar defamation claim which Siemer was not allowed to defend. The Queen’s Counsel, Robert Fardell, twice offered Siemer $175,000 to settle but these offers were rejected.
    “Even at that point I had no idea of the depth of corruption or I would have accepted it”, Siemer said after being declared vexatious.

    Justices Young and Brown found Siemer’s action against Fardell was vexatious and barred him from any further action without approval of a High Court judge. The New Zealand Law Society was quick to endorse the High Court ruling. Mr Siemer is reported to be the subject of 101 adverse High Court judgments.

    Last year Siemer set up to post filings and submissions which he contends adds perspective to the large number of short Supreme Court judgments dismissing applications to appeal to New Zealand’s highest court. The project has been on hold pending a judicial review of the Supreme Court Registrar’s refusal to allow Mr Siemer access on the ground a lack of legislation requiring access to Supreme Court records “does not allow” members of the public to access records. The judgment declaring him vexatious does not appear to prevent this judicial review which is currently awaiting a reserved decision of Justice Clifford, also of the Wellington court.

      Look at this dross with our two former justice ministers Jefferies and Doug - Sir Doug - paragons of justice, upholders of honesty, law, ethics...The Justice System [the Judges] of New Zealand that is. Who are you going to trust more ? These people or a street walker on K road...
      The common thread of these corrupt, or morally corrupt, individuals is that the are all lawyers or former lawyers [Collins, Jefferies, Graham and Winkleman].

      While being a lawyer or former lawyer is not a prerequisite to being corrupt or morally corrupt , it is a prerequisite to getting away with it before the Courts (Courts which exclude a jury).

      The difference is they did not realise just how corrupt some Judges like Winkleman are. We will come to court "armed" to overcome any corruption and any attempt to not allow a jury trial.

      The defence of provocation will be the defence for being "armed". Armed being figuratively speaking.

      We are discussing this, people are reading and becoming more aware.

      What can the corrupt industry do about that?

      Do what they have always done - be ignorant and smug.

      People leave, don't set up business here, the propaganda machine tells us " it's because of higher wages accross the Tasman, it's because of better job opportunities".

      These may be true for some, for many it's because we are; over taxed, over regulated, have our rights constantly eroded Under urgency, have trials where a single judge determines that you are now no longer allowed a jury trial and that no one is allowed to discuss it and to do so would break the law.
