NEIL SHARMAN (Claimant/Respondent) v HM CORONER FOR INNER NORTH LONDON (Defendant) & IRENE STANLEY (First Interested Party/Appellant) (2005)

PUBLISHED August 18, 2005

Permission to appeal against a decision to quash an inquest verdict of unlawful killing was not granted where the coroner had not applied the correct test to the particular case of self defence when evaluating whether it was safe to leave a rejection of self defence to the jury and where on the facts of the case the verdict of unlawful killing should not have been left to the jury.
