First challenge under new law for disabled children
Two disabled children, acting through their mothers as litigation friends, have brought a judicial review claim against Warwickshire County Council which will be heard in the High Court today (Thursday 29 January 2015). The case is thought to be the first to consider the new legal scheme for disabled children and children with special educational needs created by Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014. Ian Wise QC and Steve Broach act for the Claimants, instructed by Irwin Mitchell LLP.
More information about the case is available in the Irwin Mitchell press release
