National Party leader Don Brash has got an interim injunction stopping the publication of leaked emails he believes were stolen from his computer.
Dr Brash does not know who has the emails so was unable to name specific people or organisations in the injunction.
The interim injunction was granted in the High Court at Wellington yesterday and names as first and second defendants "John and Jane Doe".
Dr Brash said the interim injunction stopped publication by any means -- website, publication or broadcast -- or distribution of copies of the emails.
National asked the police to investigate after failing to find out who was responsible for leaking the emails.
Police said their investigation was continuing.
