The Scottish Civil Justice Council has issued a consultation on the draft rules of court for fatal accident inquiries in the sheriff court. The draft rules are designed to encourage the expeditious progress of fatal accident inquiries and make the most efficient use of time spent in court.
The Scottish Government are consulting on the proposals for fees in the Court of Session, the High Court of Justiciary, the Sheriff Appeal Court, the Sheriff Court, the Sheriff Personal Injury Court and the Justice of the Peace Court.
