Gerber v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis

Criminal law – Assault. The claimant's appeal against a decision to dismiss his claim for assault and false imprisonment against the defendant was dismissed. The Queen's Bench Division found that the judge had not erred in law in deciding there were no disputed issues of fact that the jury was required to determine and in discharging the jury without them having returned a verdict, nor in dismissing the claimant's claim in favour of the defendant in the circumstances.
