R (on the application of Fullick) v HM Senior Coroner For Inner North London

Coroner – Inquest. The Administrative Court, in allowing the claimant's judicial review proceedings, ordered the inquest into her mother's death to be held with a jury, as there was reason to suspect that the death had resulted from a police officer's omission in the purported exercise of the officer's duty while the deceased was attending a police station as a visitor. Further, in all cases where the issue of art 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights was raised for consideration, the coroner should respond with clarity, giving brief reasons if necessary.
