Courts Reform (Scotland) Act 2014

Section 43 – Jurisdiction over persons etc

75.Section 43 makes provision in relation to the civil jurisdiction in the sheriff court. It is a re-enactment of section 6 of the Sheriff Courts (Scotland) Act 1907. Section 6 is a source of jurisdiction in relation to certain civil matters where no other legislation has impliedly or explicitly displaced its operation and accordingly, its re-enactment is required in this section. In recognition, however, that section 6 has been largely but not completely displaced, subsection (3) provides that its re-enactment in section 43 is subject to those other rules of jurisdiction.
