Duff v Shearer, Chief Constable of Dumfries and Galloway

Civil procedure – Lawburrows. Sheriff Court: Dismissing as irrelevant an application for lawburrows against a chief constable based on allegations of defamation, the court held that while there was no objection in principle to applying the remedy of lawburrows to cases of defamation the pursuer had failed to aver a relevant case for lawburrows based on defamation.
