CASE REPORT (Part 1): Marsh v Ministry of Justice [2017] EWHC 1040 (QB)

30 August 2017  

Stress at work, psychiatric injury, disciplinary investigations

Following a 15-day trial before Thirlwall LJ (as she now is; she was promoted to the Court of Appeal during the course of the litigation), the Ministry of Justice was found liable for prolonging a disciplinary investigation and accompanying suspension against the claimant prison officer (Marsh v Ministry of Justice [2017]). These failings were found to have caused the premature termination of the claimant’s career due to psychiatric injury. He was awarded over £286,000.
