Hart ordered to vacate property
Mon, 10 Sep 2012 3:35p.m.
Embattled lawyer Barry Hart has lost another court battle today and been ordered to immediately vacate a Waimauku farm.
Auckland High Court Justice Geoff Venning has ordered Mr Hart to remove all livestock from the 40 hectare property, which he no longer owns after a mortgagee sale two months ago.
A spokesperson for new owner David Steele says he's now on the farm making sure the animals are gone, and so far they have discovered several horses on the property.
Mr Hart is awaiting a separate decision on whether he can continue to practice law, after last month being found guilty by a disciplinary tribunal of professional misconduct.

Was his overcharging the first he did? If so then why the heavy handed nature of trying to get rid of him and then cause mortgage sales.? After 30 years of pratice I would think there could be some leeway or other ways to sort this situation out. Lawyers have a reputation of being dodgy, jokes are made about it. He has done good work in the past and is capable of more, or is there people out there which he might of annoyed and this is the perfect way to drag him down. I hope the 'animals are gone" hasn't meant the killing of them.
