A case challenging judges' powers to order forced Caesareans has been adjourned until March. At the Family Division of the High Court last week, Mr Justice Stuart-White said another judge more experienced in judicial reviews should take his place and a hearing has tentatively been set for 14 March. The case has been taken by a 'Miss S', a single mother who claims she was detained in hospital against her will and forced to undergo a Caesarean under the Mental Health Act. Lawyers for Miss S argue judges are having to make hurried decisions under pressure over whether forced Caesareans should go ahead.
