Q522: Can I find out a result of a court case that I was not involved in?
Yes, as long as the verdict was given in open court you can find out the result of a case (in Sheriff and JP courts). There may be some time limit involved in when the courts will be able to pass this information on due to practical difficulties, i.e. if you ring up 6 months after the court date they may not be willing/able to look that far back for the result.
If the case is a high profile one then the procedure may differ and there will be stricter restrictions on cases involving juveniles.
