5 Essex Court

Andrew Waters

Call 1987

Public / Administrative

Andrew regularly appears in the Administrative Court on behalf of the police forces on a wide range of issues including search warrants, disclosure of information, police discipline, claims involving human rights, and public protection.

Cases of note include:

Morrison v Commissioner of Police of the Metropolis – whether the use by the police of a Taser amounted to a breach of Article 3 of the ECHR and required an independent investigation by the Independent Police Complaints Authority rather than by the Metropolitan Police Department of Professional Standards.

Bates v Chief Constable of Avon & Somerset – legality of search warrants especially where privileged material is sought.
