On Thursday evening both our Pursuers and Defenders were in the Edinburgh Sheriff Court for their cases against Davidson’s Mains Primary School to be heard.
Both teams were fantastic! Unfortunately I had to keep moving between the courts as they were being held at the same time so I missed a lot, but I did see all of our witnesses and they were brilliant – coping really well under cross-examinations. Our solicitors coped incredibly well with the pressure and completely destroyed the opposition witnesses under cross-examination.
I missed the Sheriff’s summing up for our Pursuers but heard it in the Defenders court and she was full of praise for the whole team – awarding us EVERYTHING! I understand the other sheriff was equally full of praise for everyone but didn’t actually give any findings at the end.
It was a marvellous experience for all involved.
Finally a big thank you to all the parents/grandparents/brothers/cousins etc. who came along to help with transport and to support us. Both courts were full!
