Court of Session Opinions

Most decisions are given verbally by judges in court. Written decisions will usually be provided when a case involves:

  • a matter of principle
  • a particular point of general public importance
  • a case where substantial evidence was heard.

When decisions are given in writing, they are published, ordered by the date of publication. A judge may rule that in the interest of justice, a particular case should  not be published.
