1930 Police Association legal representations to support member

The libel case of Gibbons vs Duffell centred on the right of an inspector to write allegedly malicious and untrue comments about a constable in an official report. 

Lower courts held that the officers comments were priveledged, but the High court eventually found that the inspector could not claim absolute immunity from Civil action.

This was one of the frist examples of legal representation by the Association, Constable Gibbons was supported through the protracted case.
