Check out this keynote address by J J Spigelman, Chief Justice of New South Wales
http://www.agd.nsw.gov.au/sc/sc.nsf/pages/sp_091099

And that quote is actually a snippet of the complete quotation. Here it is in its entirety:

“It is said, and, no doubt, truly, that when that gentleman retired with the justices, taking with him the notes of evidence in case the justices might desire to consult him, the justices came to a conclusion without consulting him, and that they scrupulously abstained from referring to the case in any way. But while that is so, a long line of cases shows that it is not merely of some importance but is of fundamental importance that justice should not only be done, but should manifestly and undoubtedly be seen to be done."
