Coram was successful in acting for the appellant in Re NY (A Child) before the UK Supreme Court.
The matter considered the use of inherent jurisdiction to order summary re-location. The Court answered “yes” to the following questions:
- Was the inherent jurisdiction in principle available to be exercised in the making of a summary order for the child’s return?
- If so, was the Court of Appeal’s approach to the exercise of the jurisdiction flawed?
