RMM v HW & Ors [2010] EWCA Civ 1467 (17 December 2010)

Care proceedings. Child had suffered an Acute Life-Threatening Event. Court found that the event had been caused non-accidentally and identified the father as the perpetrator of it. The father appealed on the basis that the evidence was insufficient to justify the finding that the event was caused non-accidentally. Court also found that the mother and the father should both be consigned to a pool of possible perpetrators of other non-accidental injuries. Mother cross-appealed against this finding. Father's appeal dismissed but mother's cross-appeal allowed.
