Waddington J:

Plaintiff alleged invasion of his dignitas and privacy animo injuriandi in that Army officers had tapped his telephone, removed documents from his office and kept him under surveillance. Whether Court’s jurisdiction was ousted by statutory provisions as a necessary implication of the internal redress procedure. Actions brought by Army officers covering purely military matters not cognizable by court of law (following English law). Such matters only reviewable if authorities exceeded jurisdiction.
