The Police Misconduct Panel a judicial body with immunity from suit


Re: P v Commissioner of Police for the Metropolis [2016] EWCA Civ 2

Appeal against the decision of the EAT to dismiss the appellant’s challenge to the employment tribunal judgment. The employment tribunal had struck out the appellant’s disability discrimination claim against a Police Misconduct Panel. The tribunal had decided that the panel was a judicial body, and thus enjoyed immunity from suit.

Karon Monaghan QC and Thomas Linden QC were involved in this case.
