Hendrick v Chief Constable of Strathclyde Police and another

Judicial review – Police disciplinary proceedings. Court of Session: Refusing a reclaiming motion in judicial review proceedings in which a police officer challenged aspects of disciplinary proceedings which had resulted in a finding of misconduct and his dismissal from the force, the court held that the plea of mora, taciturnity and acquiescence could succeed without the need for the party taking the plea to demonstrate that he had suffered, or would suffer, prejudice if the plea was not sustained, and that the Lord Ordinary had correctly sustained the respondent's pleas of mora, taciturnity and acquiescence.
