The High court has now published a list summarising cases on the earthquake list.  It is intended that the list be available on the website.  The list indicates that the plaintiffs in Turvey have appealed the Court decision about what is the meaning of “as new” in the AMI insurance policy.

By the judgment Morley & ors v EQC [2013] NZHC 230 the High Court on 18 February 2013 decided that boarding houses were dwellings for the purpose of the Earthquake Commission Act 1993, so their owners were entitle to cover and payment under s18.  EQC opposed the declaration sought by the owners of the boarding houses.
