Criminal law – Trial. Where there was an application for leave to appeal against a ruling in addition to a no case ruling, the court would need to examine the relationship of that other ruling to the no case ruling in deciding how to proceed. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, further held that if the other ruling had no significant impact upon the submission of no case to answer, the court would probably proceed at first with consideration of the no case ruling, but if other ruling, in practical terms, dictated the result of a submission of no case, the court would probably wish to consider that ruling first.
