Ampersand Senior successful in Appeal arising from first Scottish Judicial review on vetting

Ampersand’s Maria Maguire QC, acting for the Chief Constable of the Police Service of Scotland, has defended successfully an appeal arising from a judicial review challenge to a decision to refuse management vetting clearance to an Assistant Chief Constable. The decision of the Inner House also deals with the issues of the “requirement to put inconsistencies in light of the decision in HA v Secretary of State for the Home Department 2010 SC 457 ” and the “inevitability” of the same decision being reached.
