Johnson’s govt is absolutely taken down in the Court’s summary of reasons:

Scottish Court unanimously decides the true purpose of prorogation was “to stymie parliamentary scrutiny of the executive”.

Classic Dom.
Extraordinary damning judgment on Johnson's govt's position:

Lord Brodie describes prorogation as a tactic to frustrate Plmnt, an "egregious case of a clear failure to comply with generally accepted standards of behaviour of public authorities."

The PM is not above the law.
The last line on the summary says:

"The Court will ..make an Order declaring that the PM's advice to HM the Queen and the prorogation which followed there was unlawful and is thus null and of no effect."
Whatever the Supreme Court decides next week, however Johnson tries dress this up, he has been given a salutary lesson.

The fundamental constitutional importance of parliamentary sovereignty has been underlined by the Scottish court.

The rule of law applies to the PM.
