REPORTING RESTRICTIONS: MXB v East Sussex Hospitals Trust [2012] EWHC 3279 (QBD)
Date:27 NOV 2012
Law Reporter

(Queen's Bench Division, Tugendhat J, 20 November 2012)

The child applied for an order restricting reporting of the proceedings which was wider than that provided for under s 39 of the Children and Young Person's Act 1933 in that it covered digital media which did not exist at the time the Act became law. The child claimed that s 39 would not offer sufficient protection.

The child's application was allowed by virtue of CPR 39.2(4). It was necessary to protect the child from the risk of becoming a victim of those seeking to misuse funds he had received in compensation for injury.
