Auckland Airport has been made aware that the Craigie Trust has publicly indicated it intends to appeal against a June 2008 High Court decision that ruled in favour of Auckland Airport.
The High Court decision in favour of Auckland Airport followed a claim for land made by the Craigie Trust under the Public Works Act, heard before the court in March 2008.
Auckland Airport remains firmly of the view that the claim was without merit and the High Court decision is entirely appropriate. Auckland Airport will defend any appeal as and when it is filed.
