Hugh O’Donoghue successful in Judicial Review against the Metropolitan Police


Hugh O’Donoghue was successful in challenging the lawfulness and procedural propriety of the Metropolitan Police Local Resolution appeals’ framework and in doing so has outlined a defect in the appeal process that leaves the door open for others affected by the error to seek redress.

Following a recommendation of no further action in an assault case, a claim was made through the police complaints’ system, aspects of which the court found to be fatally flawed and struck down as unlawful.
