Edinburgh University Press

Discusses two cases, one from the European Court of Human Rights and one from the Sheriff Court at Dunfermline. In Da Silva Mout v Portugal the European Court finally accepted that article 14 of the Convention prohibits sexual orientation discrimination: it is “intolerable” to the Convention even although not explicitly mentioned in article 14. In R v F the question was who had title to seek an order over children under section 11 of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995.

Keywords:   Sexual orientation discrimination, Title to seek contact order, section 11 orders, No-order principle
