Regina v Maxwell [2010] UKSC 48; [2011] WLR (D) 238

“When the Court of Appeal quashed a conviction and then exercised its discretion under section 7 of the Criminal Appeal Act 1968 to order a retrial of the defendant, that decision should not be upset on appeal unless it could be shown that it was plainly wrong in that it was one which no reasonable court could have made or that it took into account immaterial factors or failed to consider material factors.”
