Malicious prosecution – Prosecutor. As a result of a jury's answers, the judge entered judgment against the Metropolitan Police Commissioner in the sum of £25,000 as damages for assault, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution. The Commissioner appealed. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had not misdirected the jury on the burden of proof as to false imprisonment or the identity of the prosecutor as to malicious prosecution. Further, loyal to the principles on which the court would exercise extreme caution and reluctance in relation to overruling decisions of a jury on questions of fact, the perversity ground of appeal would be dismissed.
