This case is an ongoing dispute between family members concerning Mrs Ann Clarke (‘P’). The substantive matter was heard by Mr Justice Peter Jackson in Re Clarke  EWCOP 2256; Re Clarke  EWCOP 2714; and Re Clarke  EWCOP 2947.
The current application was made by one of P’s sons, Michael Clarke (‘MC’) to vary the order of 9th October 2012 to allow the sale of P’s property.
This case concerns a young women aged 20 years (‘P’) and the question to be determined was whether the decisions that she had made were as a result of lack of capacity, or her adolescent life, or both. The local authority (‘LA’) made an application for declarations as to P’s capacity to:
• Choose her residence;
• Make contact with others;
• Deal with her care;
• Litigate these proceedings.
