JOSEPH IGWEMMA V CHIEF CONSTABLE OF GREATER MANCHESTER POLICE (2001)

PUBLISHED June 20, 2001
SHARE

[2001] EWCA Civ 953

A judge could allow a jury to alter its verdict even after it had been discharged, but only where the interests of justice made it appropriate to do so. The mere fact of the discharge of a jury was not critical; the guiding principle was fairness and justice.
