A subsequent separate motion filed by Crown sought summary judgment on the theory that Bains was not, as a matter of law, acting within the scope of his employment in the conduct which is the subject of Majorana's claims of assault and battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Crown contends that the absence of similar allegations in Majorana's motion for judgment of circumstances in the employment facilitating Bains' assault materially distinguishes her pleading from the pleading in Plummer.
Crown contends that Majorana failed to state her objection with reasonable certainty to the trial court's ruling and, thus, is barred from asserting this issue on appeal.

 98-8062 -- Paumer v. Crown Cork and Seal Co. Inc. -- 01/27/2000
It was Crown Cork's position that Paumer had failed to timely file a charge of sex discrimination with the EEOC, and, that, additionally, she had failed to present a prima facie case of sex discrimination.
The district court noted that most of the acts Paumer complained of occurred in 1992 and 1993, well outside the 300 day period preceding the filing of her charge of discrimination with the EEOC on September 20, 1995.
In her brief in this court Paumer presents no argument that the district court erred in dismissing her cause of action based on retaliation for her filing a charge of discrimination with the EEOC on September 20, 1995, nor does she claim that the district court erred in dismissing her four supplemental state claims.

 02-1333 -- Crown Point LLC v. Inermountain Rural Electric Association -- 02/10/2003
Crown Point moved for a temporary restraining order in the federal action requesting an injunction to prevent the state court case from proceeding.
However, because the state court found that plaintiff was collaterally estopped from raising its due process claims due to the federal court's dismissal on the merits, it did not have an opportunity to raise its federal claims in the state court proceedings prior to the state court's grant of immediate possession to Intermountain.
The court declined to consider Crown Point's due process defense prior to granting immediate possession on the grounds that Crown Point was collaterally estopped from raising the argument due to the District Court's decision on the merits in the federal action.

 The CPS : Crown Court Cross Area Cases
Crown Court cases can be heard at a court centre in a different Crown Prosecution Service Area ("the importing area") from The Crown Prosecution Service Area ("the exporting area") from which the case originates.
This may result because it was committed or sent to a Crown Court centre in a different Crown Prosecution Service Area by the exporting area's local Magistrates' Court.
This will not apply to those files where the case is transferred to an importing area for consolidation with other cases against the same defendant or to tie in with co-defendants whose case is being prosecuted by the importing area.

 The Court System
The structure of the courts in all three jurisdictions within the United Kingdom tends to be arranged according to the subject-matter of cases brought before the courts rather than the source of the laws to be applied.
In most cases, the prosecution is on behalf of the Crown (the State) and is handled by an official agency called the Crown Prosecution Service, which takes the case over from the police who have already investigated most of the evidence.
The sorts of claims arising in the civil courts are typically about contracts (most common of all), torts (civil wrongs such as the causing a road accident through negligence, damaging a person’s reputation through defamation, or affecting the enjoyment of their property through causing a nuisance such as by pollution) and land disputes.

Back in the '70's, there was 'Crown Court', a series of intelligently written courtroom dramas, starring the cream of Britain's acting talent.
The secret of the show's success lay in its simplicity; we never saw what was going on in the outside world, all we knew of the respective cases was what we heard from the witnesses, and that was enough.
Every time the camera focused on the accused, we'd be privy to his thought processes, which consisted entirely of weird electronic noises.
