'J'he ReiaiLVertders ot Alrdiciner, will see the drift'of 'fiieU unv^ortliy wd'Unfodi.dil fabciiu'luns, and ass an- swers might.subjeft therit to. T lie justice an.l the reason of. this rule applied c^iually to the Csurts of La>v, although it was^ not the, qostom there to examine the parties, as it was in Chancery, where their customs were ilerived from the Civil, instead of the Common I/dw. Ahhoogh, in the Courts-of Law, a party could not be inade a Wtincss, yet. those persons, who were brought forward as wlr-nesscsvvere equally bound todc'Iire the whole truth, as the panie? would bo in a Court 'e-'niehces;nilght result from it, witnesses would perpetually claim this privilegCj either from fear, or tlvrough favour. The point had not asyetbeen settled by any solemn decision, after a fuMar>urnent; hut, from all the lights that he could derive, and front . the tnonstrdus inconvenience^- t.Rat would rc.>;,oL�^,j^Qjnii the contrary supposition, h.e declared hiS; opinion, as to the'iirst qiiestiian, that a-witne;s is boiTnd to answer all such questions as do not expose him, either to criiiiinal prosecution, penalty, or forfeiriire ; aiid as to the second question, that the sams Eide applies to the witnesses on a trial, or a suit, wher-.^hi3 Ma-jfstyis either plaintiff or pro.seCutor. , � SVlr. justice Champrewas of the same.opinion. In the Courts of Equity, net o.nlyii person might be compelled . to answer qiiestirns which would severely afFe*5l their pecuniary interests, but Bills of Dhcovery were iiled, for tlie e:w should compel iiim to answer at the trial; 'I'lie only cases where a party could refuse to answer in a Court of Equity, were, when such aoswer would expose him to either criminal prosecution or to penalty or forfeiiure. 'I'his was what he conceived the-rule also at common la.y, and that it mott unquestionably ought to De the rule, for he thought there could be no-teaspn assigned why a man should conceive himself privileged to conceal the truth, or to .refuse to do justice between A., and B. on the ground that if he did do so, C. might h.ive an aftion against him ; which would be to siiy in. other word.s, "the pui-.lic must net call- tippa me to give evidence, or dq justic;; betweeu .A. a'.iA E.,; hecaui^e such evidence might prevent m;- IKnii aiV-ing unjustly by C. or D. to whom I shotdd wish to att lanjustiy, and from whom I should vvish ta with-. hold a j'.ist uebi." As to the authovifies uponi.he poihf, .there was on one side a great variety of opinions, expressed at A7j/ iVw, and on the other, the rule so laid down, by Lord Mansfield, and winch liC -now considered to bs the law with respect ro evidence, ; There had bein also a case in liie Court of. Exchequer, wliere an att.ichnvnt was ordered against a witness, for relusing to answLT vn these gioUiids. When he considered the practice of the Courts of EquityV and themuntieri" which this prat'^ice had bt^en addpteil' in trie Courts of Lavv, and wht'n he considti'ed the great ob.struc'Hon which would be throw-n in ilip w.iy of jtistice, if the contrary practice should urovail. he siioulJ t!ie rule to he the other way, yet It inust be. recglr lef\ed that the pointhad neve/ been seriously argued before, or probably those great and learned Judges ' might have aIterstl their opinions. He had alvvayt hclj that wanesies could be compelled to ansiver questions, even although their .mswcrs might ezpose tlu:m to civil actions'; and the mere he considered the pradice of the Courts, and the fcasgn On v/hich it vvas founded, the more he was confirmed in ihat opinion. He, thercforci, agreed with hi� Learnsci  Brethren in the answfers they had given to the questions" that had bien iubmitted to iheir opinion. Mr. Justice Oi-On praif^ice than ufiori any principle. . 'I'he pra^tc^,. however, of th^iCouns of Equity differed in--r?t rna.. teriaJlyfrom o\ the Courts of La v'/. In thf. Courts of Kqtiity, although the parties were lialile to be compei'.ed' to dnswer upon oath, yet t'vcy h;-.d I'm'^ for due deliberation and legil advjcd, and bciid;-the answers could no sfierwards Be misrepres^ru-ed. It was very difForenr, however, in a Cour: of Law, when a question rVpidly pjr by an ing':ni'.-j.^ lawyer, and anv.vered without consideration, nlig'nt �expose the: witness ro ruiri. If this answer co'.dihs given against hipo as cvidc.^,&c in, another rriai,; It would be'gi/en it; ix/-'itV.ont the witness having any opportunity, to explain his answer.. There vvcrs. many other dilFerentes between the rules cV evidence in the Courtof Equity^ and those of Gcmninn l^aw,, In the former, an infant could not be 'co.Tipelled rrf answer, in'the latter he.cou]4. ,He did not consider that the prit\ciple �bud down by Lord Manvfieid entitled to nioie w;eta,ht rhap the opinions of somnriy great and eminent Judges, whSj had de^ermired thj* other way." His-opiiiiiMi was, therefore, contrary tri ' the opinions expressed by his brother Jud^^js. Mr. Justice LAWRENCE said,,that' He had ai, ways, uiMil thi'squestion was agitated, considered tlist the rule of law was, tb^t a witness w-js..excused from answejvng sucT) questions as involved his pecuniary interest; .ahd so thirsking, he, had cor.carr2d witli other Jud^e.s in refusing a new trial moved for cn that very ground. The frrrt w.?s, till the present question vvas- stancd, t!^erc had been no solemn argument nr.r-n ilie .>ubjtCM arid he had ne'scr tuirr.rd his mind particularly to it ; h-it upon the. prL-scnr occ.ision, ha\ ing felt it hisiiiity to consider d.c sub. jeit withthe tjcir.ost atten'ticu he could give it, h" h.-K-l ch.mged his opirdon as to rl.e niie of lav,-", an.', wiis now imlined. to cons"i(hir ih;u it was dit'^^r.-n*: from what f.e had f-rm'ti}' suppc>sed. Whichever way, the general rule lay, that rule had .many exceptions ; and, although he could g from the. afarmati've, as well as Jroin the tiegJv^ive of the question which had been put ro the Judges, suiting froi minaied general rale of law was that a witness was bound to answer questLons, although he might beconte liable to a civil action in ccnsequence of his ans.^ crs. Mr-Justice ROOKE coincided with justice Gfcsc. in his opinion, ihata witness was not bound to'answer questions. wl^ithFrsigljcniaterially alrcdl his jie-cuoiary interest. He �}id not apprehend such evil consequences from this rule,' as those who held r.n oiiinion contr.iry to his.- Pro.^scutors andriair.:-tiiFs seWorn came into Court sa bi.iily provided .with testimony,, as to rely entirely on what they wera to pick up by crrss.examinaiion fffiirtiaii unwilling wimess. Neither did he think that^tHey wojld de.v-cline answering on a iirctence of their pecuniary ir:x teVest b'.-ii'g endangered, if, upsn or-imin-tti-on, i: ^y-. pcared rh.eir interest �as very, minute. H� thought a niuchgreutcrdanger would rciultTrsMn iiji. lovving. a hasty answer, unexplained, and perhaps inconectly t.ikeii do'v^i to he read as_ conclu.'-ive evidence at a trial. There was a case tjetennincd against this dodrine, but he thoitch .jinswcp. Mr. Justice Lu Bt.^NC agreed mtvsfdircidfdly with, the opiui*i�8 which had" been deltvered by the rudges preceded him. He coj^idered that it\vould vvhb" an insurap.c? cause. uiier'e he was galled as a witness, s"ul>jetkd Kiln.. seif to an 8v:fion, in which .tdioool.' damages were given against hi.-n. No court ,of equity could have cQ.mpeUiilhim to state every irregularif y hc might have comuiittcd when Commander in Chief of a fleet, and yet a. hasty answtr at Jtiisi Prius was given as evidence agjiitist him. He coti-sidered that evils of this kind were wtptss than would follow from the rule bairi" the other way. A^ to the Cciutt'i of Eqimy, whatever analogies mighi be drawn, h� diS Rencli,' he consi^ereil, t';?it witnesses nVigl being �:x.aauttei^o�'vV4t0sihat would 1 tivcivil ailiotis.
