BIM & Ors v MD

Judge: Senior Judge Lush

Citation: [2014] EWCOP 39

Short Note

A further example of departure from the rule in property and affairs cases can be found in BIM & Ors v MD [2014] EWCOP 39.   The brother and sister-in-law of P’s husband sought in the context of a major “row” to be substituted as property and affairs deputies in place of P’s husband.   They persisted in the face of indications that they application was hopeless.  They were therefore ordered by Senior Judge Lush to pay their own costs of the proceedings.
