Jarrod Mudford v New Zealand Shooting Federation Inc and New Zealand Olympic Committee Inc


Appeal against non-nomination for NZ shooting team to compete at Commonwealth Games – jurisdiction – Tribunal declined jurisdiction to hear appeal – appellant bound by contract with NZ Olympic Committee (NZOC) requiring him to follow specific appeal procedures – appellant did not do so and instead appealed his non-nomination for the team to NZ Shooting Federation (NZSF) who wrongly heard his appeal – NZOC failing to publish selection criteria (including appeal right) as agreed to do under contract – athlete may have been misled by actions of NZOC and NZSF – however under the contract the Tribunal only had jurisdiction to hear the matter if certain procedures set out in contract were complied with and they were not – out of time to appeal to Tribunal under contract – person bound by contract they sign even if don’t understand it or don’t read it.
