Le Brocq v Liverpool Crown Court

Criminal law – Costs. The present was not a case where the appellant counsel's observations on the procedure in s 28 of the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 and the complainant's sexual behaviour in his closing speech had called for the discharge of the jury, as they could have been dealt with by appropriate directions. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, allowed the appellant's appeal against a wasted costs order.
