Radio NZ reports:
Auckland activist Penny Bright has lost the latest round in a legal battle over rates she’s refused to pay for nine years.
The High Court has dismissed her appeal against a February ruling that Ms Bright must pay rates and penalties of just over $34,000.
Justice Venning said Ms Bright’s refusal to pay simply increased administration costs for Auckland, and he awarded court costs to the council.
Ridiculous it has gone on four nine years.
