We have only received the court’s decision this morning, and have not had time to consider it fully. We had always believed that the action we had taken, on the basis of our legal advice, was in the best interests of those complainers and practitioners currently within our process. Having said that, the SLCC’s Board will be meeting early next week to discuss the judgment in detail and consider whether this will have an impact for current or future complaints. We will provide further comment after that meeting.
The judgment is on the Scottish Courts website: http://www.scotcourts.gov.uk/search-judgments/judgment?id=fba635a7-8980-69d2-b500-ff0000d74aa7
