“Family Life”, Same-Sex Couples and Damages for Non-Patrimonial Loss

(p.63) Commentary No 12: January 2002
Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

Kenneth McK Norrie

Edinburgh University Press

A commentary of its time. There is created a fictitious application to the European Court of Human Rights complaining of Scots law refusal to recognise a same sex couple for the purposes of a wrongful death claim. The commentary seeks to show how the claim could be successfully argued in 2002. (Things have moved on since then, of course).

Keywords:   Damages (Scotland) Act 1976, Same-sex couples, Victimhood, Private and family life, Non-discrimination
