Orders and Rulings

In some circumstances, a coroner may need to make a specific decision about a matter reported to the court during the course of the investigation or during a court proceeding, such as an inquest. These decisions are called orders or rulings.

Orders and rulings are not written findings. They can include, but are not limited to:

  • Non Publication Orders restricting the release of some information
  • Rulings on applications as to whether an inquest should be held
  • Rulings on applications as to whether an investigation should be re-opened
  • Rulings on applications as to whether a person or organisation should be an interested party
  • Rulings on whether the coroner has jurisdiction to investigate.

 

Searching Orders and Rulings

Searches for a specific order or ruling can be conducted by entering information in the Search box that appears on the top of the Case Rulings table below. Searches can be conducted by entering the name of the deceased person whom the order or ruling relates to, or by entering the name of a specific type of ruling or order, such as non publication order.

The table will automatically filter the search based on the information entered into the Search box.
