CM, Re Judicial Review: SCS 27 Aug 2013

(Outer House) The prisoner, held in a high security psychiatric hospital, challenged the outright ban on smoking.
Held: The Lord Ordinary declared that the impugned decision was unlawful so far as it affected Mr McCann both because it was not taken in accordance with the 2003 Act principles and also because it breached his Convention rights under articles 8 and 14 of the ECHR. The Lord Ordinary did not award damages but ruled that the finding of the breach of those articles was ‘just satisfaction’ in terms of article 41 of the ECHR.
