Effectively, the decision of the Supreme Court heralds the death knell for organ retention claims. Thus many hundreds of parents, who have suffered because of overly paternalistic and defective hospital policies which existed from the 1970's onwards, are now left with no legal remedy and are not entitled to be compensated for any psychiatric injuries suffered.
