R (WG) v Leicester City Council (2011) EWHC 189 (Admin) — This JR claim had been issued to challenge a failure to carry out an assessment under s47 NHSCCA 1990, but an assessment had subsequently been carried out and not identified any community care needs: (1) permission was therefore refused; (2) it was ordered that unless the claimant was prepared to identify herself she would not be able to bring any further legal actions. 2011-04-302011 cases, Brief summary, Transcript, Unimportant cases
R (WG) v Local Authority A (2010) EWHC 2608 (Admin) — Judicial review of failure to assess under s47 NHSCCA 1990.

R (G) v South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (2011) EWHC 747 (Admin) — The claimant sought judicial review of the NHS Trust and the Met police in relation to a proposed visit to his home. (1) A civil restraint order had been made after the JR application was made: so he did not need leave of the High Court to have the claim considered on the papers; however, he did need leave for this renewed application for permission. (2) On the merits, permission would have been refused because (a) it is not the function of the court to review operational decisions such as this, and (b) the claimant had not been detained so the points regarding the MHA were academic. (3) In any event, the civil restraint order was thoroughly appropriate and would not be discharged. 2011-04-102011 cases, Brief summary, Missing from Bailii, Transcript, Unimportant cases
R (Khela) v Brandon MH Unit (2010) EWHC 3313 (Admin) — This renewed application for permission to judicially review a Tribunal decision and to quash the RC's previous diagnosis was dismissed and the claim found to be totally without merit. 2010-12-192010 cases, Brief summary, Missing from Bailii, Transcript, Unimportant cases
