Decision of coroner conducting Ann Maguire inquest not to call pupils as witnesses upheld


Re: R (Maguire & Ors) v Assistant Coroner for West Yorkshire [2018] EWCA Civ 6

This appeal considered whether it was open to the coroner conducting the inquest into the death of Ann Maguire, to decide not to question further, or call as witnesses at the inquest, nine pupils with whom the assailant had contact on the morning of 28 Apr 2014.

Nick Armstrong and Kirsten Sjøvoll were involved in this case.
