Prison Law

Taylor & Kelly have been forefront of prisoner’s litigation since their inception some 12 years ago.  We took forward on behalf of petitioner Robert Napier proceedings which challenged the appalling conditions in C Hall in HM Prison Barlinnie.  Mr Napier was successful in obtaining an interim order transferring him out of those appalling conditions.  The opinion of Lord MacFadyen can be read here.

After the case went to a full proof we were successful in persuading the judge that Mr Napier should receive damages as a result of being subjected to conditions which breached Article 3 of the European Convention in Human Rights.
