I'm afraid I have to call another judgement.
- It is legal for a Judge to produce two Judgements.
- It is illegal for a Judge to produce two Judgements.
The Judge of J(30) took the odd step of presenting two Judgements, J(30a) and J(30b). I claim that this is in conflict with the rules for answering a Call for Judgement. Specifically, Rule 401(5) states (emphasis mine):
A legal judgement will chose ONE of the options set out in the Call for Judgement or may choose and state another alternative.
If the Judge felt that no one of the options represented a correct answer then he should have chosen an alternative (possibly encompassing two or more of the given options) and supplied that as the unique answer.
The Judge selected was Simon Cozens.
Judgement J(31a)It is legal for a Judge to produce two Judgements.
Judgement J(31b)It is illegal for a Judge to produce two Judgements.
