Jackson, Sheryl (2005) Improper coaching of witnesses costs defendant its judgment. Proctor, 25(6), pp. 45-46.
In its judgment on April 11, 2005, in Day v Perisher Blue Pty Ltd  NSWCA 110, the NSW Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the District Court in favour of the defendant. The main ground for the decision of the Court of Appeal related to the conduct of the defendant's solicitors and its witnesses prior to trial. The Court subsequently referred the matter to the Legal Services Commissioner.
