TBS v Metropolitan Police Commissioner

Practice – Striking out. The defendant Metropolitan Police Commissioner, with one qualification, failed in her application to strike out the claimant's claim for misfeasance in public office and negligence, in respect of his adjustment disorder which he said he suffered as a result of finding out that his father was not a political activist, but an undercover police officer. The Queen's Bench Division's qualification related the premises that the father's supervising or managing officers had known or suspected that he had fathered a child in the course of a sexual relationship entered into using his undercover identity.
