Oliver v Calderdale Metropolitan Borough Council: CA 23 Jun 1999

In a malicious prosecution case, there is no automatic right to have it tried before a jury. If that is to be applied for, the application must be made at the earliest possible directions hearing. Where, as in this case other factors suggested that a jury trial is not appropriate, then one need not be ordered.
