S v Gloucestershire CC

[2000] 3 All ER 346

Case summary last updated at 18/01/2020 20:05 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case S v Gloucestershire CC

P1 and P2 were taken into care and allegedly placed with abusive families. Applications to strike out the cases were granted. CA reversed the decision in case 1 since there is no general immunity for local councils in this category of cases + there was a reasonable chance of success. In case 2 the same applied regarding no-immunity, BUT looking at the evidence, there was NO chance of success and therefore no point in letting the case go to trial.
