After Basil Walker submitted his interim injunction against the ORC to the Court he was reluctant to talk on camera.

ORC Chairman Stephen Cairns said the Applicant was struggling to cope with legal logistics…”even as an independent observer in the court, Mr Walker is challenged with the process”.

According to Mr Cairns, although the judge did try to impress upon the Applicant he could have dealt with the whole substantive matter on Wednesday, “the Applicant has decided to pursue his interim injunction”.

The application will be heard before a new judge next Wednesday (May 13), Justice Chisholm, who dismissed Stop the Stadium’s injunction at the Christchurch High Court.

ORC is not due to make any payment to DCC until August 1 this year.
