Rex v Jukes: 1800

A conviction by magistrates was said to be erroneous on its face, having failed to exclude a possible defence. The prosecutor objected to an application that it be quashed, saying ‘that the defendant having elected to appeal to the sessions, the certiorari was in effect taken away by the Act, because it said that the determination of the session should be final.’
Held: ‘That would be against all authority; for the certiorari being a beneficial writ for the subject, could not be taken away without express words . .’
