Practice and Procedure

R v PAUL MORRIS (2005)

PUBLISHED March 7, 2005

A direction on violent disorder was unexceptionable and it could not be said that, objectively, the defence was not apprised of the case they had to meet. There was no evidence of a wound that amounted to a break in the continuity of the whole skin and the jury were misdirected that the wound had to amount to a break to the surface of the skin.
