Ogle v Chief Constable of Thames Valley Police




LTL 6/4/2001; [2001] EWCA Civ 598 2001-04-06

A claim for damages for alarm and "distress", brought against a police force for failure to maintain an up-to-date PNC record, would be an abuse of process because there was no real prospect of success and the appellant could neither claim for "distress" nor claim under a discrete head of damage.
