Judiciary Cases

Sirros V Moore (1974) CA

Defendent appealed to the Crown Court against a magistrate's recommendation for his deportation. The judge dismissed the appeal and when saw the Defendent about to walk out of his court he called upon the police to stop him.


Held: Defndent's claim for damages for assault and false imprisonment failed. Although the judge's order was unlawful (Defendent had not been remanded in custody) the judge’s immunity extended even to acts beyond his jurisdiction as long as they were done in good faith.
