Moriah Chapel, Kenfig Hill c. In there was a 6 month coal stike which was only brought to a halt when the miners were literally starved back to work.
This case comment will examine these arguments, eventually concluding that they are ultimately unconvincing. While it can be assumed that the aim of the judgement is to protect judges from frivolous and unsubstantiated claims, the judgment risks going too far and undermining public confidence in the judicial system.
The Court of Appeal reached this decision on two grounds as discussed below. Consequently, there is a need for clear and sensible rules on whether a tribunal is, or has been, biased, however, proving that a judge was influenced by, for example, a financial stake in the outcome of a case is impossible without access to their private thoughts and records.
Police proceedings were initiated against McCarthy in the Magistrates court for driving in a manner dangerous to the public.
The Complainant, also initiated civil proceedings against McCarthy for damages. The issue at large was that the Clerk in the criminal hearing for the Defendant was a member of the law firm representing the Complainant in civil proceedings. The clerk joined the magistrates when they retired to make their decision, and even though protested that his advice was not consulted upon, the Defendant was nevertheless convicted.
On appeal, the conviction was quashed on the grounds that the Clerk, considering his connection to the case, should not have been present when the Judges were making their decision. The rule has evolved since then and the modern test for apparent bias in English law is found in the case of Porter v McGill: Facts Peter Smith J, the judge in Harb, decided that the parties did have an enforceable agreement as the Claimant allegedfinding the Defendant liable.
Ian Mill QC, and Ms. Shaheed Fatima QC, all of whom represented the defendant in Harb. Litigants are entitled to a better service than this. The reputation of our legal system is damaged by such behaviour.
Although it did comment on the issue given the weight of the allegation, it found no apparent bias, 18 concluding that the Porter v Magill test was not satisfied for the following two reasons.

The Court of Appeal supported this conclusion with two points. The Court gave a further reason why the Appeal on apparent bias should fail, where Peter Smith J gave a provisional view that the Claimant should be successful, and handed over a draft judgement before the article was published.
Analysis First, the Court made a distinction between the opinion of the litigant and that of the informed and fair-minded observer, noting that the fair-minded observer does not share the concerns of the litigant. Such a problem with this approach is that it makes it difficult to see what would satisfy the informed and fair-minded observer.
Some litigants may indeed have objectively well-founded concerns. Surely, in those situations, the informed and fair-minded observer would have to share the concerns of the litigant.
The Court used Helow to illustrate this point. But the Lord Ordinary in Helow was the member of an Association. On the other hand, the judgements of both Lord Mance and Lord Rodger agreed that a judge expressing comments similar to those of the President of the Association would show an appearance of bias to the fair-minded and informed observer.
On the contrary, the contrast between Helow and Harb goes to show that litigants may have objective concerns that could be shared by the informed and fair-minded observer. Second, the Court provided no sources for the claim that hostility towards an advocate does not affect his or her approach to the parties.
The opinion was that a judge will be fair to the parties, irrespective of their biases towards counsel because they have taken a judicial oath.
This distinction is untenable, as counsel is there to represent the interests of the parties. For example, it is clear that there is an appearance of bias when a judge or judicial assistant is also a partner in the firm acting against the defendant in another case as was the case in McCarthy.
However, the test talks of a real possibility of bias. These are some of the objections that suggest this ruling may prove an unwelcome precedent in the future. Conclusion After Harb, the current state of the law on apparent bias of a judge against counsel is uncertain.
The Court decided that hostility or aggression towards counsel by a judge is, by itself, insufficient to show an appearance of bias.
