What is the inside of a tramear? This was the legal conundrum set a King's Bench Court on an appeal from a Magistrate's decision. The Magistrate had held that the covered-in top deck of a tram was the inside of the car, where extra passengers could be carried on special occasions. He therefore dismissed a summons for overcrowding. The King's Bench Court reversed this decision, holding that the top deck was the outside of the car, although covered in. The matter was remitted to the Magistrate so that he can amend his judgment.
