COURT OF SESSION – ALLEGED SLANDER AT SALTCOATS

The Lord Ordinary disallowed the proposed issues and allowed parties a proof of their averments, on the ground that a possible conflict between averments negative of privilege and a case of vicarious responsibility made the case unsuitable for trial by jury.
Can anybody understand the last sentence in Penny Tray’s last post?

When I read it myself the first thought that came to mind was Burns' line from Tam O'Shanter - "Three lawyers' tongues turned inside out....."

Having said that (and to answer Hughie's later query) a Lord Ordinary is any of the Judges who sit in the Outer House of the civil Court of Session in Edinburgh; and what I think this one was saying is that he would allow the evidence to be heard, but because of the complications as to whether the owner of the bar was accountable for the alleged slander or her manager who actually confronted the complainer, he would ultimately consider the case himself without a jury.
Thanks, hahaya2004 and Penny Tray for trying to clarify. Am I right in thinking that the sentence means "The judge wisnae sure who should be charged an' he didnae want tae bother wi' a jury so he decided tae sort it oot himsel'."?

THE STORM

Saltcoats:
During Wednesday night there was a severe gale, the wind blowing in fierce squalls, with showers of rain.

Two cottages being erected in Caledonia Road by Mr. William Logan suffered some damage. The brick wall of one of them was thrown down, and joists and timber broken.

The roof of an outhouse in Quay Street was carried away.

Windows were in some cases blown in. Slates and window-cans were carried away from the roofs of houses.

A large wooden gate in Eglinton Street was wrenched from its hinges.

In the harbour the fishing smacks escaped injury.

Yesterday the gale continued, and there were some heavy showers.
