ET BT and CT (Children) v Islington [2013] EWCA Civ 323 (10 April 2013)

The CA allowed the appeal of a grandmother acting as the litigation friend of her grandchildren against an order within JR proceedings. The LA in which the children were living with their grandmother was ordered to conduct a fresh assessment of the risk posed to the children by their mother’s previous partner (a serial sexual offender) and their previous report displaced. The CA found the LA to have been Wednesbury unreasonable in their treatment of the conflicting police positions within the first assessment.
