Decision Reserved In Cropp NZ Drug Case

Thursday, 15th March 2007

New Zealand High Court Judge Pamela Andrews "has reserved a decision on whether NZ Thoroughbred Racing drug testing procedures are lawful, in the latest twist to the nearly 2-year case surrounding a positive test to methamphetamine by leading jockey Lisa Cropp," reported nzthoroughbredfocus.co.nz. During a 2-day hearing in Auckland, Justice Andrews "heard submissions from Cropp's counsel that disputed last month's finding by a Judicial Control Authority hearing & an earlier High Court ruling"; their argument "is based on whether NZ licensed jockeys can be forced under the terms of the Racing Act to provide body samples for drug testing".
