Appeal decision imminent

Judgment is now pending in a case in which former football star John Robertson and his ex-wife have appealed against a High Court ruling that hospital staff were not to blame for their daughter's massive brain damage. Family Division president Sir Stephen Brown and Lords Justices Roch and Brook have said they hope to give their ruling within a month. Robertson and his ex-wife blame the plight of their 12-year-old daughter on alleged negligence by Nottingham Health Authority.
