The Law Society of Scotland, petitioners and minuters

Civil procedure – Breach of interdict – Preliminary applications and objections. Court of Session: In proceedings by the Law Society of Scotland for breach of interdict by a solicitor who was interdicted from holding himself out as entitled by law to practice as a solicitor and from pretending to be a solicitor, the court, refusing several preliminary applications and objections in a motion by the respondent, held that the Law Society was not in contempt of court, the petition was not irrelevant, the proceedings were not raised in bad faith, and that the diet of proof should not be discharged because of the respondent's lack of representation.
