Practice and Procedure

R v W (2013)

PUBLISHED April 10, 2013

Evidence of similar insurance claims made by members of the appellant's family had been admissible at his trial for fraud by false representation in relation to an inflated insurance claim. The judge had properly directed the jury that the issue they had to resolve was only in relation to the count against the appellant and there was no such thing as guilt by association.
