Court case updates

The ridiculously lengthy legal proceedings against Keith Liddell continue. First reported on this blog in July 2011 (here) and subsequently in February 2012 (here), May 2012 (here) and June 2012 (here), Liddell’s case will have another intermediary diet at Inverness Sheriff Court tomorrow (9th October). Liddell is accused of various offences including the alleged trading of raptor eggs.

Another lengthy case has also been continued at Inverness Sheriff Court. The so-called ‘hare-snare’ case, which began back in 2009 (!!) was heard at Inverness last Thursday and Friday. It is now set to continue on 16th November. Two gamekeepers from the Lochindorb Estate originally faced trial but now the charges are only being heard against one of them, David Taylor. Previous posts on this case here, here, here, here, here, here.

One thought on “Court case updates”

  1. when cases are delayed and adjourned like this- all cases, not just this type of crime- it makes it more likely that some smart a*se lawyer will move for proceedings to be abandoned.
