Due to a power outage in central Auckland, the Auckland High Court has been closed for the afternoon. Services will resume tomorrow.
Other court buildings in Auckland remain open and have power, but services may be affected.
Meanwhile, the problem with the 0800 COURTS number is now resolved. The voice mail prompt for people who call from mobile phones is now correct (that is, you should ring (09) 583 1900 if you’re in Auckland or (04) 802 3930 for the rest of the country).
