Summary of Judgment STEPHANIE MORTIMER v IAIN WEST (IN HIS ROLE AS DEPUTY STATE CORONER)

Barristers, Elizabeth Brimer and Krystyna Grinberg appeared in the Court of Appeal on the 2 August 2018.
 
The Court of Appeal (Tate, McLeish JJA and McDonald AJA) allowed an appeal against an order made by a judge of the Trial Division of the Supreme Court dismissing a proceeding brought by Mrs Stephanie Mortimer against the refusal of the Deputy State Coroner ('the Coroner') to re-open an investigation into the death of Mrs Mortimer's sister, Ms Robena Lloyd. 
 
The Court set aside all the findings of the Coroner and remitted the matter to the Coroners Court for the investigation to be re-opened.
