First digital evidence hearing 17/09/2019 The first digital evidential hearing in a Simple Procedure case took place last month in Aberdeen Sheriff Court

First digital evidence hearing

The Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service has announced that the first digital evidential hearing in a Simple Procedure case took place last month in Aberdeen Sheriff Court. It was the first civil case in the UK to be processed from end to end by digital means.

In the case, the court was able to hear evidence presented by the parties and supported by digital documents and photographs previously submitted online.

Court staff were pleased at how smoothly the case proceeded, seeing this as the way forward and a welcome move away from cumbersome paper productions.

“We are delighted that the first digital hearing went well and there are more programmed to take place throughout Scotland. This is an important milestone in our digital programme and we look forward to further benefits which online services can bring,” said Kay McCorquodale, SCTS Chief Development and Innovation Officer.
