The McCann versus Leicestershire Police

The McCanns hope their application to Mrs Justice Hogg will result in Leicestershire Police opening their files on scores of reported sightings of Madeleine, most of which have been passed on to them by police in Portugal, where the four-year-old disappeared in May last year,” wrote The Telegraph

The case will be heard in open court on July 7, in the Family Division of the High Court in London. Leicestershire Police is expected to contest the request, according to legal sources quoted by The Telegraph. The newspaper also refers that "Mrs Justice Hogg, a specialist in child welfare cases, is the sister of former cabinet minister Douglas Hogg and the daughter of former Lord Chancellor Lord Hailsham."
