jury trial

Supreme Court of New South Wales

Dowling J., 17 September 1836

Source: Dowling, Notes for Select Cases, S.R.N.S.W. 2/3466, p. 19

It does not seem to be necessary that a defendant should have notice from the opposite party of the time when a special jury is struck.

Keith moved to quash the jury panel in this case on the ground that the defendant's attorney, as well as the defendant, has not had notice to attend at the striking of the special jury.

The Court thought this a nice objection and refused the application.
