Moohan and another v Lord Advocate

Judicial review – Referendum – Entitlement to vote. Court of Session: Refusing a reclaiming motion in judicial review petitions by two convicted prisoners who would be serving prison sentences on 18 September 2014, which made them ineligible to vote in the independence referendum to be held in Scotland on that date, and who challenged their exclusion from the franchise, the court held that the Lord Ordinary had not erred in dismissing the petitions.
