Readers will be aware of the constitutional tempest provoked by the decision in Hamed v R  NZSC 101. In this article, we look back at the events it set in motion and examine both the constitutional implications of the government’s response to the Supreme Court judgment and the practical impact of the “remedial” legislation passed by Parliament. To end, we offer our own thoughts on what conclusions might safely be drawn from this turbulent month.
