Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I am a solicitor in Scotland. Was this a criminal trial or a civil case? Please explain what happened in a little more detail.
It is not an option for the judge to disallow your defence without hearing it. It may be that there was a discussion as a result of which the judge recommended your lawyer discuss whether your defence had any merit and tender advice to you on that. That is why I need much more detail before I can answer your question.
