I wish to take civil action, sue NSW Police for psychological damage from incident January 2012: Unlawfully taken to attend a health facility under threat of force. . . I have full confidence in proof on the balance of probabilities with supporting evidence and no wish to be more specific for privacy reasons. Understanding the risks associated with losing and the importance of seeking legal advice on such aspect. My questions are very specific: 1/ Can civil action still be taken after this time frame? 2/ Do you need to raise the complaint with another body before civil court will hear it? 3/ If so how do you go about this, what is the most direct route to a civil claim? 4/ How can you avoid the mater being address by the local Police station who are involved? 5/ Have you a right to request the mater is not addresses by the local Police station?
