*E7 (an officer of the Metropolitan Police) v Sir Christopher Holland (Chairman of the Azelle Rodney Inquiry)

Police – Constable. The claimant police officer shot a person in the course of his duty. The defendant chairman of the public inquiry into the shooting found that the claimant could not have reasonably believed that the victim had posed an immediate threat. The Divisional Court dismissed the claimant's application for permission to apply for judicial review of the findings of the defendant, but gave some guidance as to the correct approach in such inquiries.
