Edward Devereux KC and Jane Campbell in Ben Jonas Alcott v Katy Elizabeth Ashworth & Anor[2022] EWHC 3687 (Fam)


1st Dec 2023 | Cases


Edward Devereux KC and Jane Campbell, instructed by Janet Broadley of Goodman Ray, represented the first respondent mother, Katy Ashworth, a children’s television presenter in Ben Jonas Alcott v Katy Elizabeth Ashworth & Anor [2022] EWHC 3687 (Fam), at a finding of fact hearing before Arbuthnot J. The Court found the vast majority of the 46 allegations of coercive and controlling behaviour by the father against the mother and others proved. The Court published the judgment as it was in the public interest to have this substantial fact finding judgment in the public domain and it did so in a largely unanonymised form to assist the mother to put the record straight as the long running dispute between the parties was the subject of distorted coverage online.
