The man accused of murdering Grace Millane has filed an appeal against a judge's decision not to grant him name suppression.
The 27-year-old man's name has remained a secret since his first court appearance in December.
That's because his lawyer, Ian Brookie, indicated he would appeal Judge Evangelos Thomas' decision to refuse name suppression.
This afternoon the High Court registry confimed Mr Brookie had lodged an appeal to be heard on 7 February.
Ms Millane went missing from Auckland's CBD on the eve of her 22nd birthday.
Her body was found in the Waitākere Ranges a week later.
The man pleaded not guilty to murder at his first High Court appearance last week.
He will go to trial in November.
