R (on the application of KM by her litigation friend RM) v Northamptonshire County Council

Local authority – Social services. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant local authority's policy on charging for adult non-accommodation care services on the basis that it was inconsistent with the Secretary of State's guidance. The Administrative Court, in allowing the application, held that, as written, the authority's policy was in conflict with the guidance, but even on the most generous interpretation, the policy was entirely unclear.
