Insight Issue 4 - Maughan Special Edition - Inquests & Inquiries Newsletter

By Alison Hewitt, Fiona Barton QC, Emma Price, Cicely Hayward, Amy Clarke, Jonathan Dixey, & Jonathan Landau.

(December, 2020, Edited by Alison Hewitt and Jonathan Dixey)

In this special edition issue, we bring together 8 articles focusing on the judgment of the Supreme Court in R (Maughan) v HM Senior Coroner for Oxfordshire [2020] UKSC 46 and what this is likely to mean for coroners’ investigations and inquests.

Firstly, we review Maughan itself and how it was that a majority of the Supreme Court determined that in inquests, the conclusions of suicide and unlawful killing may be established to the civil standard of proof, and whether there may be reason to revisit the decision.

As many inquest practitioners will now need to consider the possibility of a conclusion of unlawful killing, we examine the three manslaughter offences:

  • Fiona Barton QC and Emma Price examine the unlawful act manslaughter.
  • Alison Hewitt examines gross negligence manslaughter
  • Jonathan Dixey examines corporate manslaughter
  • Jonathan Landau explores the implications of Maughan for healthcare professionals.
  • Amy Clarke revisits the ‘Galbraith Plus’ test and its post-Maughan use.
  • Cicely Hayward considers the effect of Maughan on prosecutorial decisions and regulatory proceedings, and in particular whether the CPS’ current commitment to review cases following an unlawful killing conclusion will need to change.
  • Finally, Bilal Rawat offers his predictions on how Maughan will influence the preparation for an inquest.
