The High Court case of Phillips v The Queen, handed down ten years ago is argably one of the most signficant to emerge from North Queensland. It remains significant for affirming the common law rule of admissibility for similar fact evidence by re-affriming the test developed earlier in Pfennig v The Queen. It also involved an emphatic of the Queensland's Court of Appeal reformulation of the admissibility test in R v O'Keefe. It is for this reason it should be considered a doctrine of precedent case as well as a similar fact evidence one.
