House of Lords - O'Hara v. Chief Constable of the R.U.C
96-97 Session Lords publication
The trial judge described the evidence as scanty. But he inferred that the briefing afforded reasonable grounds for the necessary suspicion. In other words the judge inferred that some further details must have been given in the briefing. The legal burden was on the respondent to prove the existence of reasonable grounds for suspicion. Nevertheless I am persuaded that the judge was entitled on ...

But in his impeachment trial before the Lords in March to April 1641 Strafford defended himself so well that those intent on his prosecution were forced to adopt a more drastic measure. This was called attainder, that is, an Act that would declare the earl a traitor and condemn him to death without further trial. John Pym, the leader of the group in the Commons pushing for Strafford's death ...

Allow me to quote from my own party’s manifesto: “at the moment, there is no way that local constituents can remove an MP found guilty of serious wrongdoing until there is a general election.
