O'BRIEN v CITY OF LONDON MAGISTRATES COURT (2013)
PUBLISHED October 29, 2013
 EWHC 3831 (Admin)
A magistrates' decision to adjourn a trial was ultimately an exercise in case management which was reasonable and took account of all relevant considerations. Further, in view of the defendant's application at the start of the trial to adduce bad character evidence the decision to adjourn was almost inevitable.
