London Borough of Hillingdon v Steven Neary and Mark Neary  EWHC 413 (COP). The case is a very disturbing application of Deprivation of Liberty powers in relation to a vulnerable person. This ruling applies just to the Neary case and is not therefore to be regarded as a precedent since the facts of individual cases will differ. Nevertheless, it is a good result for casting light upon the workings of this court. The Telegraph 1st March - "Secretive Court of Protection in legal reporting first over man's battle with Council."
