SUING THE POLICE
Today Northamptonshire police force told me I do not like the police. That statement alone reveals that the treatment of me is personal, the only reason I am saddened for a few seconds, it is them that have issue with me. I also heard him say that the force is promoting my rights. So the treatment I do receive from the force is now labelled as promoting my rights?
If that is not an offensive insult, what is?
A growing number of people are now suing the police for damages in court instead of making a complaint against the police.
Two reasons for this are:
- if you are successful you get financial compensation (cash) and
- people are realising that taking out a complaint against the police rarely succeeds
Have you been a victim of police misconduct and want to know if you can take them to court? This leaflet gives you an idea about whether you can take the matter further and what you should do next. Obviously your chances of succeeding in suing the police are better if you have witnesses supporting your claims and any other evidence to back up your case. It may be difficult to win if it is just your word against theirs.
WHAT CAN I SUE FOR?
Most people want to sue the police because they have been wrongly arrested, assaulted by the police or prosecuted for something they didn’t do. Here are some things you should know about these types of action:
Unlawful arrest and detention is called false imprisonment. The police must justify any arrest and detention, so if you think the police have acted outside their powers it is worthwhile getting further advice. False imprisonment can happen on the street, in your home, in a police vehicle and of course at the police station – in fact any place where the police control your freedom. Continue reading →

According to Wikipedia: Abuse of process is a common law intentional tort. It is to be distinguished from malicious prosecution, another type of tort that involves misuse of the public right of access to the courts.
The elements of a valid cause of action for abuse of process in most common law jurisdictions are as follows: (1) the existence of an ulterior purpose or motive underlying the use of process, and (2) some act in the use of the legal process not proper in the regular prosecution of the proceedings. Abuse of process can be distinguished from malicious prosecution, in that abuse of process typically does not require proof of malice, lack of probable cause in procuring issuance of the process, or a termination favorable to the plaintiff, all of which are essential to a claim of malicious prosecution. “Process,” as used in this context, includes not only the “service of process,” i.e. an official summons or other notice issued from a court, but means any method used to acquire jurisdiction over a person or specific property that is issued under the official seal of a court. Typically, the person who abuses process is interested only in accomplishing some improper purpose that is collateral to the proper object of the process and that offends justice, such as an unjustified arrest or an unfounded criminal prosecution. Subpoenas to testify, attachments of property, executions on property, garnishments, and other provisional remedies are among the types of “process” considered to be capable of abuse.

USA – Judge Malcolm Howard, Judge Donald Stephens – Malicious Prosecutions
Elements of ProofTo win a suit for malicious prosecution, the plaintiff must prove four elements: (1) that the original case was terminated in favor of the plaintiff, (2) that the defendant played an active role in the original case, (3) that the defendant did not have probable cause or reasonable grounds to support the original case, and (4) that the defendant initiated or continued the initial case with an improper purpose. Each of these elements presents a challenge to the plaintiff. Continue reading →
