Bulletin: David Bain: Radio New Zealand reports that the judicial review into Justice Minister Judith Collin's handling of his compensation claim is set to be heard in Auckland on July 31, 2013.

STORY: "Date set for judicial review of handling of Bain application," published by Radio New Zealand on July 4, 2013.

GIST: "A date has been set for a judicial review into the way Justice Minister Judith Collins handled a compensation application by David Bain. .........In a report released late last year, former Canadian Supreme Court judge Ian Binnie concluded Mr Bain was innocent and suggested he should receive compensation. However, a review of that report, commissioned by Ms Collins, criticised those findings as legally flawed. The judicial review is expected to be heard at the High Court in Auckland on 31 July."
