1987 cases


The old category structure shown on this page is comprehensive as it contains every case. The new database structure was introduced in 2019. It is more potentially useful than the old categorisation system: it includes all cases from 2019, but only a minority of older cases: see Special:Drilldown/Cases. The pages below are initially ordered according to the dates on which they were added to the site (most recent first). The order can be changed by clicking on the symbol beside a column heading: click on the symbol beside "Page and summary" for alphabetical order; click beside "Categories" for the order in which the cases were reported. Click on the arrow symbol again to reverse the order. Click on a page name to view the relevant page. Asterisks mark those cases which have been added to the new database structure.

R v Tandy [1987] EWCA Crim 5Point of law: whether, for a craving for drink or drugs in itself to produce an abnormality of mind within the meaning of s2(1) of the Homicide Act 1957, the craving must be such as to render the accused's use of drink or drugs involuntary or whether it is sufficient for the defence to prove that the craving was such as to make it more difficult, than for an ordinary individual, for the accused to resist the impulse to consume alcohol or use drugs? 2009‑04‑10 22:29:19 1987 cases, Brief summary, Diminished responsibility cases, Judgment available on Bailii, Transcript
