WARREN THOMAS JACKSON V THE STATE (1998)

PUBLISHED October 29, 1998

It was a matter of discretion for the judge to direct the jury on issues which the appellant's counsel had omitted to cross-examine the prosecution witnesses on. Although normally it was considered good practice for the judge to discuss proposed directions with counsel, there was no reason to suppose that the judge would have derived further assistance from counsel on that issue.
