Vehicle Control Services Ltd v Laird

Civil evidence – Title to sue – Sufficiency of evidence – Admissibility of evidence. Sheriff Appeal Court: Refusing an appeal in an action in which the pursuer and respondent, which performed enforcement services in relation to a car park on private property, sought payment of penalty charges from the appellant, who had parked his van there on 22 occasions, the court held that there was sufficient evidence to conclude that the respondent had the authority to act as parking supervisor and to issue penalty notices, and that ss 5 and 6 of the Civil Evidence (Scotland) Act 1988 were permissive and failure to utilise them did not render the respondent's productions inadmissible.
