(Carson City, NV)  — The Nevada Supreme Court has put future coroner’s inquests on hold in Clark County.  The “Review-Journal” says justices have scheduled arguments next month on whether the county’s revised inquest policy is constitutional.

Several Nevada Highway Patrol troopers sued to stop a scheduled inquest into the death of a man who was shot with a stun gun in August 2010.

The new inquest process now provides a lawyer to represent the family of the person who was killed.
