Clifford Bellamy - a good judgment
The link is to a judgment from HHJ Bellamy which in my view starts to look properly at one of the ludicrous cases that many local authorities have rubber stamped by other judges.
He recognises in this that the intervention of the local authority has been harmful to the family.
This is also another case where older children who are now adult were adopted and have reinstated the relationship with their mother.
I wonder if the local authority's motivation in going after the younger children was driven by a need to justify their earlier intervention.
It is worth reading through the judgment to see what rubbish Local Authorities come up with at times.
