The Supreme Court has ruled a Bay of Plenty family can challenge an Appeal Court ruling that they acted unlawfully in taking the body of James Takamore back to his ancestral home to bury against the wishes of his widow.

Mr Takamore who died in Christchurch in 2007.

He had been living with his partner Denise Clarke and their two children for 20 years.

His body was taken by his sister against Ms Clarke's wishes and buried in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.
