A Local Authority v US and others

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. The Family Division, in a fact-finding hearing, found that a local authority had failed to prove, on the balance of probabilities, that members of a child's family had been responsible for a sexual assault on the child. The court further ruled that they had not been responsible for the child's death and that the local authority's approach had been more of a fishing expedition. The court made some general suggestions concerning police disclosure in such cases.
