Wikipedia and hyperlinks in the Court of Session

The blog of Jonathan Mitchell QC drew attention to an apparent hyperlink in Lord Woolman's opinion in the personal injuries case of Gordon v Lynch [2009] CSOH 116, published 6 August 2009.  Although not visible on the Scots Law News browser, click on the words "traumatic brain injury" in para 3, and you are through to the Wikipedia entry on "traumatic brain injury", (in here again for the benefit of our readers).

Jonathan's blog contains wise words on the dangers of treating the interactive Wikipedia as an authority (but it is jolly handy when you are in a hurry and of course it's free at point of use).  Law student readers please note that Wikipedia should not be cited in essays, dissertations and theses.
