Family of Jermaine Baker – R (W80) v Independent Office for Police Conduct [2023] UKSC 24

Michael acted for the family of Jermaine Baker in this case where the Supreme Court found that that the test to be applied in disciplinary proceedings in relation to the use of force by a police officer in self-defence is the civil law test. W80, who fatally shot Jermaine, had argued that the criminal test should be applied in disciplinary proceedings.  

Michael also acted for Jermaine’s family in the public inquiry into his death and civil proceedings arising out of his death.
