C and Another v Bury Metropolitan Borough Council: FD 18 Jul 2002

Where a children case involving a challenge to a care plan or the placement of children in care would raise issues under the Human Rights legislation, the case should normally be heard before a High Court judge of the Family Division. If possible it should be listed before a judge with experience also of administrative law. Such cases now involved a broader and more investigative approach than hitherto. The courts have a wide discretion when looking at such matters which also placed greater responsibility on a court.
