Re MLJ

Mental health – Court of Protection. The Court of Protection dismissed an application by the patient's daughter to a joint appointment as deputy with her brother, or the appointment of a completely independent professional deputy on the basis that having regard to s 6(8) of the Mental Capacity Act 2005, the daughter had failed to discharge the burden of satisfying the court that the brother had behaved in a way that had contravened his authority or was not in the patient's best interests.
