Practice and Procedure

RE P (2001)

PUBLISHED July 23, 2001

[2001] EWCA Crim 1728

In almost every case the trial judge should be the judge to deal with a wasted costs order. A barrister's appeal against a wasted costs order was unsuccessful where he had wrongly represented to a jury that his client was of good character and his negligence had led to the jury being discharged.
