CM v The Executor of the Estate of EJ & Ors [2013] EWHC 1680 (Fam) (14 June 2013)

The Court made declarations confirming the legality of blood sample taken from a deceased person being tested for blood-borne diseases. This was in the context of a ‘good samaritan’ doctor having attempted to resuscitate the deceased and potentially opened herself to contracting serious blood-borne disease. The blood tests were negative.
