Permission has been granted for a Judicial Review of the decision of a Teesside Coroner not to make an inquest an Article 2 inquest.

Mrs Justice Foster granted permission on the basis that it is arguable that Article 2 is automatically engaged, that the learned Senior Coroner did not apply the correct tests in law including as to arguability when she reached her determination and that, when correctly applied, they would produce a different conclusion.  Dr Anton van Dellen has been instructed by Alistair Smith of Watson Woodhouse Solicitors.
