Serjeants’ Inn succeeds in judicial review against Police tribunal decision

Gerry Boyle QC successfully represented the Chief Constable of Sussex in a judicial review against a decision of a Police Appeals Tribunal which had reinstated an officer guilty of gross misconduct.

The challenge successfully overturned the PAT’s approach to sanction, the disparity between officers tried together and the decision not to remit to the original panel for consideration in light of new expert evidence.
