Paterson v Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission

Judicial review – Procedure – Time bar. Court of Session: Refusing a judicial review petition by a petitioner who was convicted, inter alia, of offences relating to aiding or compelling prostitution and keeping or management of a brothel, and who sought reduction of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission's decision not to refer her case to the High Court, the court held that the judicial review was time barred because it was not brought within the time limits specified in s 27A(1)(a) of the Court of Session Act 1988 and that, in the circumstances of the petitioner's case, it was not equitable to extend the 3-month period under s 27A(1)(b).
