Court of Sessions

In Scotland;on31 May,2005, a "Court of Sessions", Lord Nimmo Smith, presiding, issued a verdict that cigarette smoking does not cause lung cancer. If someone would be so kind as a briefly inform me as to just where in the order of things a court of sessions ranks, I would be most grateful.

Respectfully yours,
Gary K.

I am not sure that is what he said, or whether it was attributed to him by the other side. See:

This is what was said and what was presented; including testimony by Sir Richard Doll. I do understand that the court of sessions is a natiomal court rather than a local court. Gary K.
