John Charles Roberts v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis




CA (Civ Div) (Pill LJ, Patten LJ, McFarlane LJ) 3/04/2012

2012-04-25

A trial judge had erred in refusing to disapply the three-year limitation period under the Limitation Act 1980 s.33, in respect of a claim for personal injury alleged to have been caused in an assault by police officers, as his conclusion that the Commissioner of the Police of the Metropolis would have suffered prejudice if a claim had gone ahead was based more on assumption than evidence.
