UPDATE Carmichael cleared

The election court will announce its decision in the Carmichael case
If the case goes against the former Scottish Secretary then the LDs could lose the one seat in Scotland they hold and have to fight a by-election.
Based on what happened in the Phil Woolas case in 2010 the Speaker might delay calling a vacancy in the constituency pending the possibility of an appeal.
The action against Alistair Carmichael was crowd funded.
