Re CT

Mental health – Persons who lack capacity. A dispute arose concerning the capacity of CT. The Court of Protection found in favour of CT's daughter, EY, and held that CT had had capacity to sever a joint tenancy on property that he owned. EY sought an order for costs against the Office of the Public Guardian. The court held that, in the circumstances, EY had been aggressive and disingenuous, and would be required to pay her own costs.
