Re CM and GL

Civil procedure – Contempt. Sheriff Court: In proceedings to determine whether two social workers in the Children's and Families Department of the City of Edinburgh Council were in contempt of court, the court found that the social workers had failed to obtemper the court's interlocutors of 24 May 2013 by not making two children available for contact with their mother from 11 July until 23 August 2013, and that in those circumstances they were guilty of a contempt of the court's authority.
