P (Children) [2013] EWCA Civ 1475 (22 October 2013)

Application by M's partner for permission to appeal a finding that it was more likely than not that M's daughter had suffered a non-accidental injury and that the perpetrator was her partner. This finding was made even though the judge said that the medical evidence was equivocal. The application was granted because the judge considered not only that there was an argument with a real prospect of success but also that the seriousness of the consequences for the partner provided a compelling reason to grant permission.
