Information about the High Court of New Zealand, its daily business and going to court.
In the High Court appeal there were three main legal questions. Three of the five judges – Chief Justice Gibbs and Justices Murphy and Brennan — said that if upon the whole of the evidence it was open to the jury to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the accused was guilty, it was not for an appellate court to disturb a verdict of conviction simply because it disagreed with the jury’s conclusion. Justice Deane dissented. He said that the evidence in his mind did not establish guilt beyond a reasonable doubt and he would have allowed the appeal.

On 22 June 1945, a baby girl was born to Alberta Gwen Morrison in the labour ward at the Kyneton Hospital in Victoria. Within the preceding five minutes a baby girl had been born in the same ward to Jessie Jenkins. Mrs Morrison and her husband said the babies had been inadvertently swapped at the hospital and that Mrs Jenkins had left the hospital with the Morrisons’ baby, later named Nola Jenkins. Four years later, the case reached the High Court. The delay was caused by a misunderstanding on the part of the Morrisons about their rights to sue.

The High Court was divided. Justices Rich and Dixon said the evidence left the parentage of the child so much in doubt that it would not be for the child’s welfare to remove her from her present custody. Justice Webb said the evidence as a whole did not warrant the conclusion of the trial judge that the child belonged to the Morrisons. The evidence included the fact that two other children had been born within 24 hours of the contested children. One of those might have been given to the Morrisons and explain why Mr Morrison could not be Johanne’s father.
