COURT FOR CONSIDERATION OF CROWN CASES RESERVEDCourt for Consideration of Crown Cases Reserved. Hist. A court established in 1848 to review questions of law arising in criminal cases. ? Trial judges posed the postverdict questions of law to the Court, which decided whether error had been committed. The Court was abolished in 1907, and its jurisdiction was transferred to the Court of Criminal Appeal.
¡ª Also termed Court for Crown Cases Reserved.
¡°It was an old practice for the judge, in case of a conviction, if he felt a doubt as to the law, to respite judgment or sentence, and discuss the matter informally with the other judges. If they thought that the prisoner had been improperly convicted, he was pardoned. Statutory authority was given to this practice in 1848 by the establishment of the court for Crown Cases Reserved. All the judges were members of this court; and five, of whom the Lord Chief Justice must be one, formed a quorum.¡± 1 William Holdsworth, A History of English Law 217 (7th ed. 1956).
