Jamieson v Sister Zoe O'Neill and another

Limitation of actions – Triennium. Court of Session: In an action in which the pursuer sought damages in respect of a scalding injury he sustained when one year old and while in a residential care home for children operated by the defenders, the court held that the action was time-barred and that it was appropriate to order a preliminary proof on time bar before the court was called on to decide whether, in exercise of its discretion, to allow the case to proceed to proof on its merits.
