A mum found by a family judge to have inflicted fatal head injuries on her daughter is facing the threat of jail for allegedly going on Facebook in breach of reporting restrictions linked to her case.
Giving his judgment in family civil proceedings, the judge said he had come "to the clear conclusion" that, on the balance of probabilities,
the injuries sustained by toddler Summer Mai Rogers-Ratcliffe "were caused by her mother", Victoria Rogers.
In a new development Ms Rogers is now accused of breaching a reporting restrictions order by putting four posts on the Facebook page "Justice
for Summer Mai".
The existence of the family judge's ruling at Teesside County Court was first made known last month soon after a coroner concluded at an entirely separate inquest that 21-month-old Summer was "unlawfully killed".
The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) decided not to bring criminal proceedings, which require a higher standard of proof than civil proceedings.
The CPS said it could not be established whether it was Summer's mother, stepfather or grandmother who was looking after her at the time she was injured in February 2012.
Today Kirklees Council was due to apply to the High Court in London to force Ms Rogers to appear and show cause why she should not be committed to prison for the allegedly illegal Facebook posts.
The application being made by Lorraine Cavanagh on behalf of the local authority was adjourned by Mr Justice Moylan to next week - Friday,
August 15 - after hearing Ms Rogers needed time to obtain legal aid for lawyers to represent her.
Summer's grandfather James Ratcliffe has vowed to go on with his 25-year-old son Joss - Summer's father - to fight for justice and set up
the Facebook page on which Ms Rogers allegedly made her four posts.
More than 2,000 people have signed a petition urging the CPS to reconsider the decision not to prosecute anyone.
The grandfather said he was "flabbergasted to think that in 2014 an inquest found Summer was killed but no one has yet been made
Summer, who lived in Nook Green, Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, was a normal, healthy child in a family with no involvement with social services, her inquest heard.
Her parents split up when she was three months old. She was taken to hospital after being found unconscious in her cot at around 8.30am on
Monday, February 27, 2012.
She had a severely swollen brain, which was bruised and bleeding, and died hours later. A post-mortem examination revealed she had suffered a
"blunt force trauma" to her head.
Ancillary nurse Miss Rogers, 27, Summer's stepfather Craig Sharp, 34, and grandmother Susan Rogers, 58, were arrested seven months later as
they were the only people in the house in the time frame the tot was injured.
All three insisted they had not touched the girl and did not know how she suffered the injuries.
The family judge said in his ruling that Summer had a tantrum after returning from her grandmother's house on the day before she was found
In evidence, Miss Rogers said she had told her daughter: "I'm sick of you coming home like this." Mr Sharp claimed she told her daughter
something to the effect of "I can't stand you any more".
The judge said: "I... have no doubt that the mother was acutely distressed by Summer's tantrum. I am satisfied that the mother is an emotionally fragile person who would have been deeply upset by the episode which followed Summer's return home on the Sunday.
"The evidence does not, in my judgment, support the conclusion that anything was likely to have happened which would have caused Craig S
(stepfather) to lose his self-control in the two hours or so between the mother leaving home and Mrs R arriving.
"The evidence does support, in my judgment, the conclusion that something happened during the course of that night which caused the
mother to lose her self-control.
"However hard the decision, having regard to the cumulative effect of all the evidence and, in particular, the matters referred to above, I
have come to the clear conclusion that, on the balance of probabilities, the evidence establishes that the injuries sustained by Summer were
caused by her mother."
