Parents seek damages for death of Brian Rossiter

Brian Rossiter's parents will go to the High Court today seeking damages for the death of their son, who was found unconscious in garda custody.

The 14-year-old died in hospital in 2002, two days after being found unconscious in a cell at Clonmel Garda Station.

He was being detained on suspicion of having committed a public order offence in the town.

Just last week, a jury at Cork City Coroners Court returned an open verdict in the case after hearing evidence from some 31 witnesses over eight days.
