The Law Lords are to consider the case of a solicitor who claims she was wrongfully arrested by police. Solicitor Georgina Lois Smith, has won leave to appeal against her failed claim against Wiltshire Police. In 1988, she acted for a man accused of threatening the life of the father of a girl with whom he had been involved. He was later charged with possession of explosives which, it was alleged, had been contained in milk cartons. Smith is said to have collected the cartons from the accused man's balcony thinking they would assist in his defence but to have later been arrested by police, and accused of attempting to pervert the course of justice. She did not face charges and brought action against the police over her arrest.
