R (on the application of Davey) v HM Coroner for Leicester City and South Leicestershire

Coroner – Inquest. The claimant sought judicial review of the defendant coroner's decision not to hold an inquest with a jury into the death of his mother. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the application, held that the coroner had not erred in law by concluding that there had been no evidence before her upon which to found a legitimate suspicion that there had been a systemic failure inherent in the surgical procedure that the claimant's mother had undergone.
