East Sussex Case
This story from East Sussex demonstrates that the priorities of Childrens Services are not what is defined in statute.
Effectively they have used sleight of hand to prevent a father from caring for his child. I think procedurally he may just be out of time to take the authority to judicial review. On the other hand he should be able to use the argument that he applied to the Court of Appeal to deal with this.
I have not read the judgment on this. However, I have some scepticism as to whether the judgments on the Convention of the Court of Appeal on Family matters are properly in accordance with Jurisprudence at the ECtHR. More on this later.
