A PCT v LDV [2013] EWHC 272 (Fam), [2013] MHLO 6

"The two questions considered at the hearing, which form the subject of this judgment, are (1) Do L's current circumstances amount objectively to a deprivation of liberty? (2) When assessing whether L has capacity to consent to her accommodation at WH, in circumstances which amount to a deprivation of liberty, what information is relevant to that decision?"

Thanks

Thanks to Alex Ruck Keene (39 Essex Chambers) for providing the judgment.
