REPORTING RESTRICTIONS: MXB v East Sussex Hospitals Trust [2012] EWHC 3279 (QBD)

(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.
