Saunders v Henry Adderley: PC 24 Jun 1998

(Bahamas) In the absence of other recorded reasons for a decision of an appellate court a contemporaneous note taken by junior counsel and exhibited on affidavit would be taken as evidence of the reasons given. When the question is what inferences are to be drawn from specific facts, an appellate court is in as good a position to evaluate the evidence as the trial judge.
