Laura Hibberd appears in the Court of Appeal in Re K (A Child)
Laura Hibberd, instructed by Morrison Spowart, appeared on behalf of the Respondent Mother in an appeal by the child’s guardian following a dismissal of a care order application in a final hearing earlier this year.
At the final hearing the Judge had refused to find threshold was met in respect of the child and therefore no public law orders were made. The children's guardian appealed that decision contending the judge had erred by not finding threshold was met and had conflated welfare and threshold issues in his judgment. Laura represented the mother at the final hearing and in the appeal.
