The judicial inquiry into the NYPD-involved death of Eric Garner began Monday.

Judge Erika Edwards has ordered 13 witnesses, including NYPD officers and sergeants, to testify in order to offer more insight and transparency into the fatal 2014 incident, ABC reports.

The proceedings will focus on: the arrest and use of force against Garner, the filing of official documents concerning Garner's arrest, the alleged leaking of Garner's arrest history and medical condition from the autopsy report, as well as the alleged lack of medical care for Garner.

There will not be any legal rulings at the end and no one will be charged based on the testimony given in the inquiry.

New York City objected to the inquiry, believing enough about the case has become publicly known.
