A rape trial aborted because judge went on holiday...

A rape complainant will be forced to give evidence twice after the trial of her alleged attacker was aborted because the judge went on an overseas holiday.

The 50-year-old woman took the witness stand in the Auckland District Court on Monday for what was originally set down as a four-day trial.

She was part-way through giving evidence when the trial was aborted as it became clear the case would not finish before Judge Philippa Cunningham flew to Australia yesterday for a pre-booked holiday.
