French & Ors v Chief Constable of Sussex




LTL 28/3/2006; [2006] EWCA Civ 312; Times, April 5, 2006 2006-03-28

The Court of Appeal held that claims by police officers for psychiatric injuries allegedly suffered as a result of a fatal shooting, which they had not witnessed, and which had led to criminal and disciplinary proceedings against them that had led to stress and the injuries complained of, were struck out on the basis that they were bound to fail on grounds of causation and remoteness.
