"Lawyers acting for a teenage mother from Nottingham whose new baby son was taken from her by social workers are taking her case to the Court of Appeal.
The baby boy, named only as G, was separated from his 18-year-old mother only a few hours after he was born at a Nottingham hospital in the early hours of last Wednesday.
An emergency ruling at the High Court then decided the child had been taken unlawfully because no court order was sought to take him away.
The baby was then returned, but was again removed and placed in foster care after a judge at Nottingham County Court granted the city council an interim order.
Now it has emerged two appeal judges, both experts in family law ,will be asked to hear an immediate appeal on Thursday.
At the county court, District Judge Richard Inglis said there could be "frequent" contact between mother and son, but a final decision would have to wait until later in the year." Nottingham evening Post 7/02/08
The mother is to appeal.
