The recent case of the HSE –v- LG and JJ  IEHC 297 displayed the view of the High Court of applications made to it to request the Courts of another Member State to assume jurisdiction in care proceedings. The application in this case related to a child who was born in Ireland of English parents and was the subject of care proceedings here.
The very sensitive nature of child care proceedings leads to little surprise that proceedings are invariably held in camera with strict reporting limits. Recent times have seen the introduction of The Child Care Law Reporting Project. While reporting on cases that occur from day to day in the Child Care list in the High Court and the District Court, proceedings remain in camera.

The Plaintiff’s claim in this case arose out of alleged negligence on the part of the Defendant Hospital in failing to diagnose a faulty knee prosthesis over a number of years, resulting in little or no quality of life for the Plaintiff, severe and debilitating pain, unnecessary treatment, and an addiction to painkilling medication.
In September 2007, the Plaintiff underwent surgery in the form of a sigmoid colectomy in the Defendant Hospital to treat diverticular disease. Initially, her progress was good, but on the third post-operative day, she began complaining of discomfort and a distended abdomen.
