[2010] EWCA Crim 1656

Where the prosecution had suggested to a witness that she had given untruthful evidence to protect her employer from being convicted in order to protect her own job, the judge had been right not to discharge the jurors as they would have realised anyway that she might have had her reasons for supporting her employer. Moreover, her answer, namely that in any event she would be able to get another job, was capable of allaying concerns that the jurors might have had.

CA (Crim Div) (Elias LJ, Calvert-Smith J, Foskett J)
