AND UPON consideration of the Claimant’s Article 8 right to respect for private and family life
and the Article 10 right of freedom of expression
AND UPON the court being satisfied that the case is likely to attract publicity and that revealing
the identity of the Claimant is likely to unfairly damage the interests of the Claimant and those

39.2(4) and s39(1) Children and Young Persons Act 1933

name, and whether orally or in writing, references to the letters ‘ZDA’ and to the Claimant’s
grandmother and Litigation Friend, the letters ‘SDA’.
2 To the extent necessary to protect the Claimant’s identity, any other references, whether to
persons or places or otherwise, be adjusted appropriately, with permission to the parties to
apply in default of agreement as to the manner of such adjustments.
3 Provided that the parties and/or their advisers and/or NHS Resolution do not publish any
documents containing references to the Claimant or his litigation friend by name the parties
be at liberty to retain their files in this case without alteration or substitution and to retain
and generate internal documentation which identifies the Claimant and the litigation friend
for the purposes of the litigation.
4 So far as the Claim Form, or any Judgment or Order, or any other document to which anyone
might have access pursuant to CPR Rule 5.4A-D at any time does not comply with the above,
the Claimant’s solicitor has leave to file with the court copies of such document adjusted so
as to comply therein. Such copies are to be treated for all purposes as being in substitution
for the relevant originals; and the originals are then to be retained by the court in a sealed
envelope marked: “not to be opened without the permission of a Judge or Master of the
Queen’s Bench Division”.
5 A non-party may not inspect or obtain the copy of any document from the court file (other
than this order – duly anonymised as directed) without the permission of a Master. Any
application for such permission must be made on notice to the Claimant. Such file is to be
retained by the court and marked “Anonymised”.
6 A non-party may not obtain any copy statement of case or other document from the court
file unless it has been edited (anonymised) in accordance with this direction.
7 Reporting restrictions apply as to the disclosing of any information that may lead to the
subsequent identification of the Claimant or his family.
8 Any non-party affected by this order may apply on notice to set aside or vary this order.
