Go-ahead for King Richard III burial case.

A JUDGE has expressed his hope that a dispute over where the remains of King Richard III should be reburied will be settled without the need for an "unseemly, undignified and unedifying" legal tussle. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave gave a group of the monarch's relatives the go-ahead to bring High Court proceedings in what he described as an "unprecedented" case. Richard's remains were discovered in Leicester last year: archaeologists from the University of Leicester were given permission to decide where the bones should be reburied by the Ministry of Justice and the university has decided that Richard should be re-interred at Leicester Cathedral. But relatives who have formed the Plantagenet Alliance want the remains buried at York Minster, claiming it was the King's wish. A full hearing to resolve the case is expected later in the year.
