Adelaja (by her litigation friend, the Official Solicitor) and another v Islington London Borough Council and another

Practice – Extended civil restraint orders. There was no doubt that an extended civil restraint order should be made against the second claimant, as it was clear both from the conduct of the proceedings that the second claimant was the driving force behind the various claims and applications. The Queen's Bench Division further held that it had jurisdiction to make an extended civil restraint order against an individual who lacked capacity and that, as an exercise of discretion, it was appropriate that the extended civil restraint order be made against the first claimant, given the lack of protection otherwise afforded to the first defendant.
