There's more on the Vernon case, which is being held at the Court of Session, Edinburgh, in front of Lord Doherty, in a second Scotsman piece here.
The story is also being reported by other media, for example, the online STV site, here. This article is accompanied by a photo of a 'Curling stone'. In fact the pic is of a Canadian 'iron' sitting on outside ice, which shows how little the editor of that piece knows about the sport. Ignorance? Or just taking the Mickey?
