Dali Mpofu, a well-known South African lawyer, and another South African lawyer engaged into a Twitter debate over recent court decisions. According to the lawyer who previously mentioned, judicial judgements are binding, unlike opinions.
He went on to say that it is dangerous and bad to imply that judicial judgements are merely opinions, and he drew attention to this. Dali Mpofu, on the other hand, seems to have a different opinion, as he advised the aforementioned lawyer to consult a colleague in order to better comprehend the law of evidence. ' Attorney Dali Mpofu apparently disagreed with the previous attorney, as evidenced by this.
Before concluding the conversation, Advocate Dali Mpofu suggested that the other lawyer in question return to law school or receive a refund of their money. If you were surprised to find that Dali Mpofu's views were shared by others, you're not the only one. These people say that judicial judgements are not based on laws, but rather are only opinions.
"An extremely risky position to be in is to assert that a court's decision is nothing more than an opinion. The judicial system is built on the foundation of judgments. Here, not a single viewpoint is conveyed."
