Re S-F (A Child)

Family proceedings – Orders in family proceedings. A judge's refusal to make a placement order in respect of a child and to place the child in long term foster care could not be criticised. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, held that, in the circumstances, given the evidence which had existed to assist the judge in making his decision, it could not be said that he had been wrong in the balance in reaching the conclusion he had arrived at.
