This was a judgment given by the trial judge part -way through a fact – finding hearing dealing with the court’s power to dismiss an application or, alternatively, to use its case management powers to limit the findings to be considered as well as the implications of a Local Authority’s decision not to pursue allegations after its case had concluded.
