Richard III Judicial Review Application dismissed

Judgment was handed down by the Divisional Court last week in proceedings by Plantagenet Alliance Limited (a company representing collateral descendents of Richard III who wished to see Richard’s remains re-interred in York Minster). The application for judicial review of the terms of the exhumation licence (as regards reburial) and the decision to rebury the remains in Leicester Cathedral was dismissed.
