Re A (A Patient) [2016] EWCOP 38

Sep 29, 2018, 21:17 PM
I have before me a number of applications which arise in relation to an elderly lady, A, whose affairs have been administered for almost 60 years by the Court of Protection, by its predecessor the ‘old’ Court of Protection, and, before that, pursuant to an inquisition held in 1959. Each of the applications is made by or against A’s nephew, Desmond Maurice Fitzgerald.

(Court of Protection, Sir James Munby P, 10 August 2016)

This judgment was delivered in private. The judge has since, on 18 August 2016, given leave for the judgment to be published on condition that neither A nor C is to be named: see Re A (A Patient), Re applications by and against Desmond Maurice Fitzgerald (No 2) [2016] EWCOP 39, para 14. All persons, including representatives of the media, must ensure that this condition is strictly complied with. Failure to do so will be a contempt of court.
