Jonathan Cowen and Edward Bennett successfully acted for a Local Authority in the High Court

April 7, 2015

Jonathan Cowen and Edward Bennett successfully acted for a Local Authority in arguing that the arrangements made by a Trust for a disabled 15 year old child in a hospital which were made with parental consent did not constitute a deprivation of the child’s liberty requiring authorisation under the inherent jurisdiction.

This case has been reported on Bailii.
