Re DT

Mental health – Court of Protection. The Court of Protection considered an application by the Public Guardian, seeking a declaration that DT lacked mental capacity and, if that was granted, an order that his sons be required to provide information as to their management of DT's affair, failing which they would be removed from their position. The court held that, among other things, there was nothing irrational, impracticable or irresponsible in DT's wish that his sons should continue to act as his attorneys. The conduct of the sons had not been sufficiently detrimental to justify making the orders sought, nor had they acted outside the scope of their authority.
