Gisborne High Court & District Court


In line with current advice from the Ministry of Health around the COVID-19 outbreak, the Chief Justice has made the decision to suspend all new jury trials from Monday 23 March 2020 for two months.

If you were scheduled to appear between 23 March 2020 and 15 May 2020 you no longer need to attend court, and the Ministry will be in contact if you are required later.

You should not come into the court.
