The leading authority on all aspects of family law

PUBLICITY: Re R (Identification: Restriction on Publication) [2007] EWHC 2742 (Fam)

(Family Division; Sumner J; 22 November 2007)

The four children had been placed for adoption. The local authority had obtained an injunction against the biological father on account of his threatening and intimidating behaviour, and had provided parents with only limited information about the prospective adopters because of fears that the parents would interfere with the placement. The authority became aware that the parents were operating two websites on which they stated that the children had been wrongfully removed from them, and that no one should attempt to adopt the children.

Granting an order restricting publication relating to the children, and also granting a mandatory injunction requiring any persons served with an order to remove information relating to the children from any website under their control, the court noted that the parents were entitled to express their view that they had been the victims of a miscarriage of justice, but were not entitled to interfere with the court adoption process by deterring prospective adopters.
