From the masterpieces
Here is a snippet from the book Lessons Learned in Software Testing: A Context-Driven Approach: Kaner, Cem, Bach, James, Pettichord, Bret
When a bug has been marked as resolved, a tester should review it. If the bug was marked as fixed, the tester should try to show that the fix was incomplete. If the bug report was rejected as nonreproducible or not understandable, the tester should fix the report. If the bug was deferred or rejected as a non-bug, the tester should decide whether to gather additional data in order to challenge the deferral or rejection. If the bug was rejected as a duplicate, the tester should decide whether she agrees. Some project teams bury bugs by marking them as duplicates. Normally, the tester who reported the bug will retest it, but if a non-tester reported it, the bug should be evaluated by the tester most familiar with that part of the program. When feasible, that tester should also consult with the original reporter. No bug should be marked as closed unless it has been reviewed and closed by a tester.
