Crown Court Bail. The Administrative Court held, allowing the instant judicial review, that the judge in the Northampton Crown Court had wrongly refused the claimant bail after the claimant's bail was revoked when it came to light that there had been jury tampering at his criminal trial. The judge's decision was criticised on the basis that it involved a procedural error; the Court finding that a special advocate should have been appointed for the purposes of the bail decision.
