Christopher Poole represents Local Authority in committal proceedings reported in the Guardian

Joint Head of Chambers, Christopher Poole, recently represented a Local Authority in committal proceedings reported by the Guardian newspaper.

Mr Justice Hayden decided not to imprison the “bullying and bombastic” mother, who had attended her son’s parents evening, despite previous orders for her not to contact her son, but refused to recuse himself. The mother stated that she was entitled to attend the parents evening under the terms of a previous order.
