Following the controversy surrounding the Supreme Court’s decision in Fraser, the  law reform organisation JUSTICE has published a press release supporting the Court’s decision. The release states that:

‘Since the UK Supreme Court decision last week that the conviction in the case of Fraser should be quashed, the Scottish Government has indicated its displeasure at the power of the Court to rule on Scots cases and is now considering restricting or even removing the jurisdiction. JUSTICE considers such a move would risk creating a worrying limitation on the ability of individuals in Scotland to vindicate their rights.’

The release then goes on to provide a useful ‘myth busting’ guide to common misconceptions surrounding the relationship between the Supreme Court and the Scottish legal system.
