Many of the links above refer to Canadian, English and US resources which will be of limited relevance or interest to Scottish users. Do not rely on information contained on pages of Scottish Law Online nor on pages linked to without first obtaining legal advice from a qualified Scottish Lawyer. The commentary added to Donoghue v Stevenson is based upon unsubstantiated rumour which, as with all rumours, is probably wrong.
