Timeline: Court battle for soldiers' relatives

The families of soldiers who died in Iraq will today ask judges to rule that they can bring damage claims against the Government, under the human rights legislation.

  • Families started legal action as a result of the deaths of a number of British soldiers following the American-led invasion of Iraq in 2003
  • In June 2011, a High Court judge had come to the same conclusions
  • In October 2012, appeal judges said relatives could bring negligence claims but not claims under human rights legislation
