Practice and Procedure

R v H (2012)

PUBLISHED May 18, 2012

[2012] NICA 40

A judge had been entitled to continue a trial after one juror was discharged and there was nothing to suggest this had impacted on the fairness with which the remaining jurors had viewed the evidence. The jury had been placed under no pressure to return a verdict and had clearly taken care in analysing the evidence following a fair and balanced direction from the judge.
