RE J (A CHILD) (2003)

PUBLISHED June 30, 2003

[2003] EWCA Civ 1097

Judge was wrong to refuse an application by the maternal grandparents for an adoption order by elevating to an unacceptable level the consideration that the father might have had an important role in the future and should not therefore have been excluded.
