12 May 2023
Following a trial at Lincoln County Court last month, Lincolnshire Police have paid out £4,000 to a man who was arrested and detained for 17.5 hours following his voluntary attendance at a Police station.
Christian Weaver represented the claimant. Christian was instructed and supported by Demi Drury, Senior Associate at Higgs Newton Kenyon Solicitors and Head of the Actions Against the Police department.
Christian successfully cross-examined numerous police officers during the trial. In advance of the hearing, he provided the court with a comprehensive document of written legal arguments. The judge took assistance from these arguments when ruling in favour of the Claimant.
