In re J (Children) (Care Proceedings: Standard of Proof) [2012] EWCA Civ 380; [2012] WLR (D) 111

In looking to the threshold criteria identified within section 31 of the Children Act 1989, and addressing the problem of the unidentified perpetrator of violence to a child or children where the pool of perpetrators was limited, the courts had to apply, with great care, the authorities in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, where it was mooted that such authority was not compatible with certain decisions of the House of Lords.
