Adorian v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis

Court of Appeal

“The requirement in section 329 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 that the court’s permission had to be obtained before a convicted offender could bring civil proceedings for trespass to the person was procedural and directory.

Adorian v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis [2009] EWCA Civ 18; WLR (D) 23

The requirement of s 329(2) of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, that the court’s permission be obtained to bring civil proceedings for trespass to the person where the claimant had been convicted of an imprisonable offence committed on the same occasion as the alleged tort, was procedural and directory, and therefore proceedings brought without such permission were not void but could be cured on application to the court.”
