Notable cases of Mrs Justice Theis

Re X [2020] EWFC 39  Was the first case that the court dealt with an application for a parental order, where the intended father died during a surrogacy pregnancy – Mrs Justice Theis recognised the case as a “difficult and tragic background.”

Archie Battersbee case – Mrs Justice Theis rules it was not in the child’s best interests to be moved to a hospice and refused the family permission to appeal. Their application to the ECHR, arguing that the high court’s ruling violated the European convention on human rights, fails.  Barts Health NHS Trust v Battersbee v Dance & Ors [2022] EWHC 2098 (Fam) (05 August 2022)
