This assignment requires you to examine some of the characteristics of the English Legal System. Is there a difference between law and justice? Are the differences between civil and criminal law clear? How important are juries and lay magistrates? How do courts differ from tribunals? What do the cases like those of Ian Tomlinson show us?
Mark Revill aged 21, with another man attempted to break into a brick shed on William Newbery’s allotment at about 2 o’clock in the morning. Mr Revill and his companion had already that night stolen cars and caused criminal damage elsewhere and intended to steal items from the shed. Mr Newbery, who was aged 76, was sleeping in the shed in order to protect his property after earlier thefts and vandalism. He had with him an air rifle and a single-barrelled 12 bore shotgun and ammunition for both guns. When he was awakened by the noise of the two men trying to break in, he loaded the shotgun, poked it through a small hole in the door and fired. The shot hit Mr Revill on the right upper arm and chest. Mr Revill was prosecuted for various criminal offences he had committed that night, pleaded guilty and was sentenced. Mr Newbery was prosecuted for wounding Mr Revill but was found not guilty. Mr Revill then brought a civil case against Mr Newbery claiming damages for the injuries he had suffered from the shotgun blast. In this case the judge awarded Mr Revill damages.
