(Court of Protection; Judge Lush (senior judge of Court of Protection); 5 August 2010)
Part of the local authority's costs were awarded against a niece disputing the local authority care arrangements for a 90 year old vulnerable adult. The general rule was that no order as to costs in such proceedings. The District Judge was highly critical of the niece's conduct.
On appeal the judge set aside the costs order.
