Michelle Christie represented the local authority and Abigail Turner appeared on behalf of the father in proceedings concerning a child who had sustained a vertical skull fracture. The Judge found that the injury was caused by an unfortunate and tragic accident and determined that the section 31 threshold criteria was not made out. The Judge specifically mentioned Michelle Christie in his judgment, expressing that “that the documentation and the paperwork in this case have been immaculate and well-prepared in every respect, particularly the opening statement of the local authority, but also the allegations, as set out”.
