R (on the application of Hewitt) v Denbighshire Magistrates Court

Criminal law – Trial. The claimant sought an order quashing her convictions for common assault and harassment of a terrierman at a hunt on the ground that the judge should have recused himself. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the judge had had no obligation to disclose the fact that he had previously acted as solicitor for a different terrierman with the hunt.
