Gordon Dangerfield is a Scottish Solicitor Advocate who has represented a number of high-profile cases, including Tommy Sheridan and Craig Murray.[1]

Tommy Sheridan

One of Lord Turnbull's first cases on the Bench was Sheridan v News International, the Tommy Sheridan libel case against the publishers of the News of the World where he set aside the decision of the jury which was in favour of Sheridan.

Interest on damages

Lawyer Gordon Dangerfield reported:

As a matter of interest, he was also the presiding judge, in 2006, in the Tommy Sheridan defamation trial where, fortunately for Tommy, the case was decided by a jury and not the judge. As a result, I appeared before Lord Turnbull representing Tommy a couple of years ago to seek interest on the damages awarded by the jury, a request which was resoundingly refused by the judge. We appealed to the Inner House, where Lord Turnbull’s decision was, equally resoundingly, overturned by the Lord President Lord Carloway and two other senior judges, and Tommy got his interest — another £170,000 odd.[2]
