An Appeal from the Court of Appeal of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas in which Peter Knox QC acted for the Respondents.

Lord Kerr:

“On 16 December 1998, the appellant, Shorn Scott, was assaulted by officers of the Royal Bahamian Police Force. He brought proceedings for compensation for the injuries that he suffered as a result of that assault. On 29 January 2010 Madam Justice Estelle Gray found that the assault was unprovoked and that the appellant had established liability. She made an order that damages be assessed. This appeal is concerned with the assessment made of the general damages of the appellant’s claim.”
