Successful appeal against the decision of the Māori land Court granting orders to change the status and partition the land in question. The land was General land until a status order was registered against the title. Therefore the Māori Land Court had no jurisdiction to consider the applications for partition.

McKay - Okurupatu B4B2A
Māori Appellate Court (2001) 13 Takitimu Appellate MB 154 (13 ACTK 154)
15 May 2001
Unsuccessful appeal against a decision in the Māori Land Court. The land was Māori freehold land, not General land and the non-Māori owner was subject to the same requirements as a Māori owner would be regarding alienation. The Appellant had no capacity to alienate the land as he had not complied with the Māori Affairs Act 1953.
