In this case, we represented a father who had previously had findings of non-accidental injury made against him.  The mother sought to re-open the findings due to a change in expert opinion which needed to be explored. This was agreed upon by the father.  During the re-opening of the finding of fact hearing further medical experts were instructed, a neonatologist and a radiologist.  Evidence was heard in the re-opened finding of fact hearing and the Court was invited by the parties not to make any findings of non-accidental injury against the parents.  The Local Authority officially withdrew their application for the findings.  The parents were found not to have non-accidentally caused the injuries which they had previously been found to have caused.
