Re BIM, DM and AM

Mental health – Court of Protection. The Court of Protection dismissed an application by the patient's brother-in-law and his wife to be appointed as deputies in place of her husband who had had a stroke. The court held that it was in her best interests for the application to be dismissed and for the two named solicitors to be appointed jointly and severally to be her deputies for property and affairs, in circumstances where there were allegations of misconduct on the part of the applicants.
