Mrs Justice Theis has been appointed as Vice President of the Court of Protection with effect from 13 February 2023. She will succeed Mr Justice Hayden.
Re X  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.
