James Adams represented the child, whose parents had each been found to have perpetrated serious domestic abuse against the other, at a six-day final hearing. Recorder ordered that the child have no direct contact with his father and made a three-year section 91(14) order. James was instructed as a lone junior opposing the father’s appeal in the Court of Appeal before Peter Jackson, Coulson and Nugee LJs. He argued that there had been no breach of section 6(1) of the Human Rights Act 1998 and that the expert psychiatrist’s evidence was correctly relied upon by the Recorder.
