Practice and Procedure

R (on the application of MORRIS) v WOOLWICH MAGISTRATES' COURT (2005)

PUBLISHED April 21, 2005

If a judge proceeded to deal with an individual who was accused of a criminal offence against a member of the court staff, and that judge had direct involvement with both the incident complained of and the court staff involved, those proceedings would be lacking due process for want of impartiality.
