An unusual feature of the history of this case is relevant to the matters to be considered in determining whether the interests of justice require the admission of Mr Joy’s reports in evidence on the hearing of the appeal.
Following delivery of his reserved judgment, Judge Davis remanded the appellant to appear for sentence. The appellant filed an application for a rehearing. He had by then been granted legal aid and was assisted by counsel, Mr Eastwood. The Legal Aid authorities had paid for Mr Joy to prepare a report. It seems that the full report was not available at that time but Judge Davis took a sympathetic view. He said:

Mr Bolton represented himself at the hearing and it is highly likely he would not have known the nature of the evidence that he would have been required to have presented to the Court, sufficient to challenge the experts that Maritime New Zealand presented to the Court.
[b] This is one of those rare cases where justice must not only be done, but it must be seen to be done, and I will allow Mr Bolton to file detailed affidavit evidence from his expert Julian Joy.
Maritime New Zealand was given time to respond to Mr Joy’s evidence and the Judge said he would then decide whether or not to grant a rehearing on the papers.
Bolton’s Submission to Judge Toogood will follow …
