Dear Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service,
1) Who decides on what judgements should be published or not published on the scottish courts website in order for public viewing?
2) Aren't the public, such as my self, entitled to view any case as it will be no doubt of public importance?
3)The court is a public office offering a public service so therefore don't l, the public, have the full right to view every case?
