R (on the application of BLICK) v DONCASTER MAGISTRATES' COURT (2008)

PUBLISHED October 7, 2008

[2008] EWHC 2698 (Admin)

A judge had erred in applying a due diligence test as the primary test when considering reopening a case pursuant to the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980 s.142 rather than whether the interests of justice required the case to be reopened.
