The matter in Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court underscores the tenuous balance between the right to cross-examine a witness — a cornerstone of the adversarial court process — with the importance of minimizing the potentially traumatic impact the legal system can have on alleged victims. At issue is a he-said, she-said case: A 19-year-old woman said she had been sexually assaulted byRead More
