Clearly it is an ethical for them to do this butit isn't unlawful. The Constabulary do not officially encourage it although itis an absolute widespread practice.
This isn't even really a lie with intent toget you to come down to the police station or whatever. This is a totallybizarre lie
I am sorry but I have to tellyou the truth.
Do remember that I can only give you myopinion.
Another lawyer may have a different opinion.Litigation needs at least 2 parties and neither goes to court expecting tolose.
Nonetheless, one of them does, even thoughthey have been told by their respective legal advisers that they have a goodchance of success.
If there was a black-and-white answer to everylegal problem there would be no need for anything to ever proceed to court.
The ultimate decision comes from a countycourt judge in a civil case or from the magistrate in a criminal case heard inthe magistrates court or the jury in Crown Court.
