Re X, Y and Z (Minors) [2014] EWCOP 87

"On 20th and 29th November 2013, sitting as a judge in the Family Division and in the Court of Protection, I made final orders by consent in two conjoined proceedings (1) under Part IV of the Children Act 1989 care orders in respect of three children and (2) under the Mental Capacity Act 2005 authorising the payment of sums to facilitate the care of the children from funds held in trust for their mother who is a person lacking capacity within the meaning of the 2005 Act. This judgment sets out the reasons for making those orders."


The judgment was originally published on BAILII with the neutral citation number [2014] EWHC 87_2 (COP). Then it was changed to [2014] EWCOP 87_2.

It's possible that the _2 is because the court sent two judgments with the same citation, though there is now no case with citation [2014] EWHC 87 (COP)Not on Bailii! or [2014] EWCOP 87Not on Bailii!. It would take too much work to get this website to have an underscore in the title, so I'm adopting that citation for this case, even though technically [2014] EWCOP 87_2 is correct.
