Carleton v. Beaverton Hotel,  O.J. No. 520 (S.C.J.)
Date of Decision: February 05, 2010
The trial judge declared a mistrial as a result of opposing counsel’s conduct throughout the trial. In lengthy reasons the trial judge held that the cumulative effects of the attacks against counsel in the presence of the jury and the allegation of dishonesty and the tampering of evidence fully justified a mistrial. Costs thrown away were fixed.
