Re: B (a Child) [2013] UKSC 30 (12 June 2013)

The Supreme Court (Hale SCJ dissenting) dismissed an appeal by two parents against the making of final care orders with a view to the adoption of their child. The court held that the test for an appeal court to apply to both whether the threshold was crossed and whether a Care Order should have been made was simply whether the determination was ‘wrong’.
