R (on the application of O'BRIEN v (1) CITY OF LONDON MAGISTRATES' COURT (defendant) (2) CROWN PROSECUTION SERVICE (interested party) (2013)

PUBLISHED October 29, 2013

A magistrates court had not acted unreasonably in adjourning a trial on the basis that the case would not be completed within a day due to the late attendance of prosecution witnesses and the defendant's late application to adduce bad character evidence.
