DFX v Coventry City Council Failure to Remove Revisited
MAY 2021

The High Court has this week (w/c 24 May 2021) handed down its decision in the important case of DFX v Coventry City Council [2021] EWHC 1382 (QB).

To our knowledge, this is the first post-trial judgment to consider the principles set out in in the muchdiscussed Supreme Court decision in CN v Poole [2019] UKSC 25. Interested parties will recall that CN v Poole reset the position for so called ‘failure to remove’ cases (i.e. whether a local authority can be held liable for failing to take children into care). In CN v Poole the Supreme Court held that there is no general common law duty to protect children in the community from harm caused by family members or third parties.
