Glasnost reaches the Court of Protection but is this a good thing? Caroline Dinenage in introducing the Pilot Scheme said that 'It's right the public and media should be able to see justice being done in this important court..'. With a heavy sigh and sardonic smile I ask myself - Is it really? I only ask as some of the cases that I have been involved in have more to do with the dysfunction in the modern family rather than important questions involving the public interest. I can only hope that the 6 month pilot assists us in producing a more accountable court with carefully scrutinised decisions rather than producing a voyeuristic free for all.
