Nude jogger ruling sign of growing tolerance

“What it points to is the growing tolerance in New Zealand of diverse lifestyles and freedom of expression,” he said.

“The judge pointed out that Mr Pointon was going out of his way to be away from most people and was being sensitive to their needs. There was no element of exhibitionism. He was 20km away from a built-up area.”

Bott said he did not believe the case would lead to widespread nudity.
