R V KEITH CUNNINGHAM (1999)

The trial judge summed up a case so confusedly, with unmerited commentary, a misplaced burden of proof, overly emphasised scientific evidence and an unnecessary R v Lucas (1981) 3 WLR 120 direction, that convictions for causing grievous bodily harm with intent and affray were quashed.
