Family Division president Sir James Munby, who has long argued for allowing the ‘glare of publicity’ in to family courts, says some cases should not be debated under the public gaze. The mother of G (a child), wanted Munby to remove what she called a 'gagging order' over private law proceedings in 2002 relating to her daughter. The parents had agreed not to speak to the media. Handing down judgment last month, Munby concluded that the mother should not be released from the undertaking she gave. The mother wanted her children/other families to be able 'to make up their own minds' about her by 'reading the whole story', and to use the documents "to show to a reputable broadcaster... to corroborate [her] assertions of a miscarriage of justice", and to take her case "to the court of public opinion".'
