The Coroner at that 1990's hearing recommended that UK armed forces should refuse to serve in combat with US armed forces until the US introduced proper front-line fire control discipline. Not something of course within his powers to enforce but does show his opinion of the matters before his court.
Robertson’s book by the way also covers a number of important Civil Rights cases in which he appeared. The account of how a senior defence barrister mimed the presentation of certain defence evidence in the ‘Romans In Britain’ obscenity case is on its own worth the price of purchase. And as for the Matrix Churchill, the connections with Iraq and possible consequent corruption threads... yes this is a book that need re-reading, definitely.
