A court warrant (also mis-spelled warrent and warrents) is a warrant usually issued by a Magistrates’ or Crown Court. This ‘catch all’ term for court warrants covers:
- a warrant for arrest and arrest warrants
- a search warrant and police search warrants
- a warrant of commitment which can be used to enforce judgments
- a warrant of further detention
What is a Defective Court Warrant?
Defective court warrants are warrants which contain incorrect information.
Usually, they are produced as a result of inaccurate details being provided by the police, or entered by the court staff when writing up the warrant.
The consequences of these innocent mistakes can be significant, as they may give rise to:
- false imprisonment claims where an arrest warrant has been wrongfully executed,
- trespass claims as result of a wrongful search warrant,
- basic, exemplary and aggravated damages, where the police’s conduct in obtaining or executing the warrant is criticised.
