Jenkins's judgment: In the High Court of Judicature at Fort William in Bengal. The 23rd November 1909. Carnduff's dissenting judgment dated 23 November 1909. Harington's final judgment, 18 February 1910. The last two printed in Calcutta.

The Alipore Bomb Case was the trial of a number of revolutionaries of the Anushilan Samiti in Calcutta (their object, according to Harington, being 'to deprive the King of the Sovereignty of British India by force'), held at Alipore Sessions Court, Calcutta, between May 1908 and May 1909. The trial followed in the wake of the attempt on the life of Presidency Magistrate Douglas Kingsford in Muzaffarpur by Bengali nationalists Khudiram Bose and Prafulla Chaki in April 1908, as a result of which two ladies (Mrs and Miss Kennedy) died.
