Judicial Questions with Self Represented Party

R. v. Thornton, 2016 ONCA 562:

[7]            We do not view the trial judge's interventions as being disruptive or tantamount to cross-examination. To the contrary, it is clear from the transcript that the trial judge appropriately intervened to clarify confusing testimony and to assist the appellant, who was self-represented at trial.
