50 Most Recent High Court Opinions

This is a list of the fifty most recent opinions ordered by the date that they were published. Not all opinions  are published. Generally, only decisions which involve a matter of principle, a particular point of general public importance or are delivered after a substantial hearing of evidence, will be contained in a written Opinion. The reasoning for procedural and routine decisions, or those involving the sentencing of convicted persons, is usually only announced orally. Where a decision is in the form of a written Opinion, it will be published on this website unless, in the view of the judge, there are exceptional circumstances requiring such publication to be restricted.
