R v Bow Street Metropolitan Stipendiary Magistrate, ex parte Pinochet Ugarte (No 2)[1] was an English legal case which involved the unprecedented setting aside of a House of Lords judgment based upon the possibility of bias. Lord Hoffmann's failure to declare links to Amnesty International meant that a previous House of Lords judgment on the immunity of former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet had to be set aside.[2]
