Norrie, Kenneth (2006) Rushed law and wrongful death. Journal of the Law Society of Scotland, 51 (4). pp. 24-25. ISSN 0458-8711Full text not available in this repository.
Considers the amendment made to the Damages (Scotland) Act 1976 s.35 by the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006 which gives certain relatives title to sue for damages. Lists the revised categories of relatives who count as "immediate family" and identifies problems with the interpretation of s.35(5) regarding the removal of affinity as an indictor of entitlement.
