DL v A Local Authority & Ors [2012] EWCA Civ 253 (28 March 2012)

In a case dealing with elderly parents and their abusive son. The CA upheld the decision of Theis J that the inherant jurisdiction for the protection of adults survived the passing of the MCA 2005. The court therefore had jurisdiction to make declarations and , if necessary, put protective measures into place in relation to vulnerable adults who do not fall within the MCA.
