Thank you for your response. But can the Bar Reporter on her own discretion refer to the matters dismissed ex simplicitar in order to influence the judges mind and would this be allowed.
They are court appointed solicitor who would write the things that are relevant in the court report. The are in essence safeguarders in a contact case.
8 year ago the case was brought to the high court because my spouse claimed I tried to strangle her. Medical evidence showed that was not the case and the case was dismissed ex simplicitar. Now the bar reporter has referred to that case to sway the sheriff mind against my cause. Can she do that. I have been told I can cross examine the reporter on the content of the report.
