Crown Court CTL rulings were unlawful

News | Wed 28th Sep, 2022

Tom Little KC representing the DPP succeeded in persuading the Divisional Court that Crown Court Judges were acting unlawfully in expressing a view as to the merits of the current industrial action by the Criminal Bar Association and had failed to take a case specific approach to the circumstances of the cases before them. The Court has provided clear guidance as to the correct approach to CTL applications arising by virtue of trials being adjourned because of the absence of defence counsel.
