Haycocks, Regina (on the Application Of) v Worcester Crown Court: Admn 15 May 2007

Renewed application for leave to seek judicial review of the crown court in dismissing his appeal against conviction for driving with excess alcohol. The judge had refused an adjournment to allow fresh counsel to be instructed, and had behaved in a discourteous and biased manner. He had said that the police had forced their way into his house and used CS gas and otherwise behaved so improperly that the evidence should not have been admitted.
Held: On such an application, the court was limited to seeing whether no court could resonably have concluded as the first instance judge had. The claimant had not established what he needed to establish and the leave was refused.
