Frances Judd QC successful in the Court of Appeal in Re A (Children)


26th Jul 2018 | News


Frances, acting on behalf of London Borough of Southwark, and leading Tim Parker of 9 Gough Square, successfully sought a retrial in a case where  the first instance judge had dismissed the proceedings. It was found that, in this most difficult of cases, the trial judge had failed to consider the evidence as a whole, and in particular failed to connect two sets of injuries, one of which had proved fatal. Moreover, he had wrongly adopted a ‘pseudo-mathematical’ approach to the burden of proof.

The judgement can be found here.
