R (on the application of Maguire and others) v Assistant Coroner for West Yorkshire (Eastern Area)

Coroner – Inquest. The defendant assistant coroner had been entitled to conclude that there had been a clear risk of harm to former pupils, aged about 15 or 16, who had had contact with the perpetrator of the murder of the claimants' wife and mother in calling them to give evidence, but that there had been little prospect of their oral evidence assisting materially in ascertaining the circumstances of the deceased's death or in learning lessons for the future. Accordingly, the Administrative Court dismissed the claimant's application for judicial review.
