The Appeal sections contain the primary documents of the appeal hearing held in Court 73 before three lord judges: Judges Mantell, Buxton and Pill. Irving’s lawyer, Davies claimed that Irving might be a sloppy historian, but he was not a deliberate liar. He had simply arrived at “reasonable alternative positions” regarding the evidence and began to rehash much of the material covered in the trial. Four weeks later, the Court of Appeals handed down its judgment. Irving did not attend the court session. The judges found that Judge Gray’s ruling was the model of “comprehensiveness and style” and that it stood. The appeal was rejected. The judges also ordered the Irving pay the court costs. The Appeals section also contains the defense and the prosecution’s legal submissions.
