A sample of Harpreet’s concluded cases include:

A Claimant v CPS and the Chief Constable of Essex Police: A claim for negligence arising from the disclosure of the identity of a police informant which led to substantial losses for the Claimant.

TA v The Home Office: A claim attracting significant damages for distress under the Data Protection Act 1998, following the mistaken identity of the Claimant by the Defendant which resulted in his unlawful detention.

AA v The Chief Constable of Sussex Police: A claim on behalf of a former child asylum seeker for trespass to goods and psychiatric harm resulting from the unlawful destruction of irreplaceable family photos.

LD v The Home Office: A claim on behalf of a British citizen unlawfully detained in immigration detention.

Inquest touching upon the death of Richard Davies: Representing the family in the inquest into the death of Richard Davies who was shot by police officers in Cambridgeshire. The inquest concluded in July 2017 with the Coroner issuing a Regulation 28 report addressing concerns about the ammunition used. This in turn led to a change in Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire police policy.
