Case to answer for Occupy Auckland

The judge in the Occupy Auckland case has ruled there is a case to answer.

At the Auckland District Court defence lawyer Vanessa Withy has argued Auckland chief executive Doug McKay had no authority to ask protesters to leave an issue trespass notices at Aotea Square.

However, Judge Robert Ronayne has rejected that, saying the council holds the title to the land.

All of the defendants have chosen not to give any evidence and no defence witnesses will be called.

Lawyers on both sides will now give legal submissions.

The judge says he will reserve his decision.
