by top Family Court judge
Two Dames have taken aim at the top Family Court judge, saying she is ignoring concerns about how whānau are treated in court.
Dames Tariana Turia and Naida Glavish were among a group of five Māori leaders who sought an urgent Waitangi Tribunal hearing over the government's handling of Whānau Ora.
Shortly afterwards, they sat down with Principal Family Court Judge Jackie Moran and Chief District Court Judge Heemi Taumaunu to talk about whānau experiences in the court.
They walked away with a promise of a working relationship but have now joined a growing chorus who say the Family Court is falling short of its own standards.
