Why do we bother to have courts?

After spending over $1 million in taking the issues before the Environment Court and after having the Court give its go ahead, the Government is set to "veto" the proposal to build a marina at Whangamata.


Who knows. Environmental pique?, Maori lobbying? No one but the minister knows.

If rumours are indeed true and the Minister is about to veto the proposal it begs the question, What purpose does the Court have? Why would Kiwis waste their time going through the court process, it would be better to cross a Ministers palm with silver to get results.
