Phillippa & Gareth Goodman-Jones in a judgment 13 February 2023 lost their claims against people involved in building work at their house at Charteris Bay, Lyttleton.  In a judgment 23 March 2023 in Goodman-Jones v Hughey & ors [2023] NZHC 604 the Court fixed the costs payable by the plaintiffs at a total of $519,840.02.   An expensive waste of time.
