    Don't know if this is old news or not. I just came across the Scottish court's legal decision for the famous Walsh Trial online at Google Books. This is not the transcript of the trial, but is the legal decision. The book containing it is entitled:

    Cases Decided in the Court of Session, and Also in the Court of Judiciary and House of Lords From August 2, 1955, to July 19, 1956 and can be found online at: http://books.google.com/books?id=AFsuAAAAIAAJ&dq The decision begins on page 126 and is quite lengthy. Issues for the case were whether Jehovah's Witnesses were to be recognized as a religious denomination and whether the defendant was a "regular minister" of a religion. Those who might want just the decision itself can download a PDF (just under 10 MB) from this filesharing site: http://www.filesend.net/download.php?f=0bd70fc8053a6e3c35f82b1583a87e6c The transcipt for the Trial itself has been online for awhile. One location to view it in PDF is at: http://www.catholic-forum.com/members/popestleo/Walsh_Trial.pdf (This file is a long download...I believe it's over 90 MB.)
