PUBLICITY: Pelling v Bruce-Williams [2006] EWCA Civ 1046
Date:25 JUL 2006

(Court of Appeal; Wall LJ; 25 July 2006)

The earlier judgment had changed the practice of the court so that anonymity was no longer automatic in children's cases, but there had been no injustice at the time in the injunction having been made without first hearing the father as to the merits, and the wording had been in the common form at the time.
