When someone has been found guilty of committing a crime (either civil or criminal) they should not be able to claim subsequently for personal or financial compensation or injury from those they committed the act against whilst that act was taking place.

Assuming the victim acted with reasonable force (the judge will decide) in defending his/her self or property, the court should decree that the guilty party shall not make any further claim related to that case against the victim through any court or institution.

Why is this idea important?

This will free up court time and send a clear message that crime does not (and will not be seen to) pay.
