[2009] EWCA Civ 748

If a civil judge was to regard the punishment given by the criminal court for certain conduct as too lenient, it would be improper for him to use his power of committal in respect of that self-same conduct in order to top up the punishment to what he regarded as a proper level. What he had to do was to sentence only for such conduct as was not the subject of the criminal proceedings.

CA (Civ Div) (Ward LJ, Wall LJ, Wilson LJ)
