In re NL (A Child) (Appeal: Interim Care Order: Facts and Reasons) [2014] EWHC 270 (Fam); [2014] WLR (D) 70

‘The case raised issues of practice and procedure arising in the early stages of care proceedings including: (i) the importance of the need to ensure a just and fair assessment process despite the impetus to complete public law cases within 26 weeks, (ii) the alarming and patently wrong practice of justices sitting in the family proceedings court adopting the local authority’s analysis of what their findings and reasons might comprise, and (iii) the importance of listing appeals from interim care orders, where separation had been sanctioned, as a matter of urgency.’

“Listing hearings can be tricky. You need to find a time the Court can fit you in. You need to squeeze it into your hectic diaries without upsetting other clients who firmly believe that theirs is the only case you have on right now. It needs to be a time that your busy barrister and the other side’s busy barrister can make.”
