CrestClick to enlarge image

In certain cases the judgment reached by the court may be of public interest or have wider implications beyond the parties involved. In these cases a summary of the court’s opinion will be produced and published along with a link to the full opinion. The summary provides a short explanation of the decision, the main points that it raises and will give an indication of any further proceedings that may be required. 

You can search judgments and opinions for individual cases on the Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service’s website. Please note that only in cases where there is a significant point of law or particular public interest will the opinions be published.
