In The Courts before Mr Justice Ryder QC.
By: Paul Reed.
A judicial review against Manchester City Council’s Directorate for Adults is currently underway regarding the revised social care offer. A hearing will take place about this next Monday 24th October 2011 and Tuesday 25th October 2011 at 10.30am, at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, 1 Bridge Street West, Manchester, M60 9DJ. The presiding judge will be Mr Justice Ryder QC, who recently took the unusual step of allowing journalists into the hearing at the Court of Protection, which usually sits in private. It was believed to be the first time a judge has allowed reporting of a Court of Protection case while it is in progress. This hearing on Monday 24th October concerning the City Councils reworked social care offer for adults, is in an open court, so the public are welcomed to attend.
