Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of AB) v X CROWN COURT (2009)

PUBLISHED May 22, 2009

[2009] EWHC 1149 (Admin)

A decision of a Crown Court judge to refuse to recuse himself from a wasted costs application he had initiated against a barrister was amenable to judicial review, as the decision fell outside the exclusion to the High Court's supervisory powers under the Supreme Court Act 1981 s.29(3).
