TA v AA (by his Litigation friend, the Official Solicitor) and another

Court of Appeal – Practice. The claimant applied to set aside the standard authorisation made by the second defendant local authority, authorising the deprivation of the first defendant's liberty. The first judge of the Court of Protection granted the Official Solicitor permission to withdraw that application and the second judge refused permission to appeal. The claimant sought permission to appeal. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in refusing permission, held that it did not have jurisdiction to hear the appeal, as no application had been made by the claimant to the second judge for permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal.
