Contempt of Court:
1. R v Gray Commented [GS1]:

R. v. Gray (1900, 2 Q.B., 36) was decided the very next year. In that case Darling J. was
attacked by a newspaper because he had warned reporters at an assize trial that they must
not publish indecent matter which was likely to be read out in court. The circumstances of
Darling J. 's appointment to the Bench were apparently intended to give point to the
comment that he " would do well to master the duties of his own profession
before undertaking the regulation of another ". In finding that there had been contempt,
Lord Russell of Killowen declared: "Judges and courts are alike open to criticism, and if
reasonable argument and expostulation is offered against any judicial act as contrary to
law or the public good, no court could or would treat that as contempt of court." But the
above comment, and others in the same strain, were not thus protected as they constituted
"scurrilous abuse of a judge as a judge". It is important to notice that the article was
published after the trial was over and that proceedings were taken in the High Court
several days later; there was therefore no question of interfering in a matter subjudice.
