The Hastie Stable congratulates Peter McCormack on his appointment as summary sheriff.
More than twenty summary sheriffs have been appointed to a role created as part of major reform of Scotland’s courts.
The new judicial office of summary sheriff was created to deal with some types of civil and criminal cases in the sheriff court.
The 21 new sheriffs, who join the first ever 15 summary sheriffs appointed last year, will take up office in March.
