By mhartman

At last the Privy Council in Crawford Adjusters (Cayman) Ltd and others v Sagicor General Insurance (Cayman) Ltd[2013] UKPC 17; [2013] WLR (D) 229 has ruled that malicious prosecution constitutes itself as a tort for purposes of civil as well as criminal proceedings.

Need I say more than that the court was constituted by Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury PSC, Baroness Hale of Richmond, Lord Kerr of Tonaghmore, Lord Wilson, Lord Sumption JJSC: 13 June 2013
